The 






This magazine is dedicated to the curious people who want to know the "inside" technical information regarding 
computers, BBS's, the telephone company, arcade games, radio equipment, general electronic equipment, cable and 
other utility companies and anything/everything nobody else wants to talk about.. .or might not even KNOW aboutl 
Are you a hacker? Are you curious? Do you want to know how-it-works? Then you want to read this magazinel 




What's down there, you ask? Aside from the horrible smell of stagnate water and a little methane gas, quite 
a bit of old (and new) technology sits there - awaiting the curious to take a peek. They're everywhere - those 

little manhole lids. Is there anything useful? What you will find is 
the j-box hunters dream of a lifetime, more or less. If your area of 
expertise happens to be WIRES, this is the place for you! You'll 
have access to hundreds of lines down in one of these pits. Be 
sure to bring plenty of ventilation, a flashlight or two, a few tools of 
the trade and a lid tool, so you can get that heavy son of a gun off 
the hole! With a little leverage, the lid will pop right off - and away 
you go. Around these parts of Southern California, we see these 
lids opened up every day of the work week. It's not uncommon to 
find several telecomm. trucks/vans parked next to one of these 
and observe about half a dozen (or more, sometimes) telecomm. 
personnel hanging around it, as if there were 
some sort of telecommunications ritual being 
performed. It's quite a site, indeed. If you're

On the Cover: 

For most of us over here at Blacklisted! 411, we don't ever let a time go by when we see a "telephone 
company convention", as we like to call it, without stopping along side and harassing some information out of 
the attendees. It's not very difficult to find out some interesting information from the people who work for the 
phone company. They like to offer their information, thinking for some reason, that it makes them look better, 
perhaps? Maybe they're just really cool people and like to pass info along. Either way, don't pass up the 
opportunity of gaining a little more insight into the phone company in your area when you see a lid opened up 
or a J-Box opened up and a phone man somewhere nearby. You'll not regret taking the time to do so.

Introduction 



Hi everyone! We re here with another issue of blacklisted! 
411. I'm sure all the veteran readers know all about the 
magazine, but for the new people joining the viewing 
audience, Let's recap what this magazine is all about and 
where it came from .. Read this once again: 

This magazine is provided to the individuals out there who 
are interested in knowing more than they're supposed to, 
according to the powers that be. We would like to basically 
tell the powers, more or less, we are ALL entitled to, and have 
a right to free information. We are here to tell the people what 
they want to know You wanted us, here we are. 

Anyhow, we're starting our third volume. Yes, we've been 
here for two whole years now. The first volume consisted of 
12 issues We decided to go to a quarterly format for our 
second year? Why? Distribution! We wanted more people 
to read what we had to say, so we concentrated on producing 
MORE copies for each issue It's worked out very well for us 
- and our readers. We've got a HUGE distribution now! 

Originally, we came up with the magazine because we 
were all looking for a magazine which covered more than 
telephone hacking, etc So, with a lot of work and such, we 
managed to produce our first issue of Blacklisted! 41 1 and 
had it on the shelves January, 1994. It was an exciting time 
for us. 

Anyhow, for the readers who have been with us from the 
start, you will notice a LOT of changes to the magazine For 
one, you'll be sure to notice the front cover! Yes, we decided 
to go back to the title bar we used for a couple of issues 
during our first year. Why? It looks nice That's about the 



only reason, really. Un the pages throughout the magazine, 
you will notice all sorts of minor differences we introduced to 
give an overall more appealing appearance to our readers. 

For all of the new readers, we're happy to have you 
aboard! We just LOVE to hear from our readers as much as 
possible and we're more than happy to accept any question 
which falls into the general direction of our usual subject 
matter. No question is too dumb! So, if you want to know 
something about topics we write about, please ask us - we 
won't put you down like some other magazines might tend to 
lean toward. The best way to have a question answered is by 
either sending it to us via Internet E-Mail, snail mail (post 
office) or via FAX. If we get a call by phone, we'll have to 
convert speech to text and it takes the longest for us to reply 
to these type of questions. 

For those of you who HATE our magazine, well, despite 
the threats, despite the hatred, despite the anger guess 
what? WE'RE STILL HERE! . ..and, more importantly, we're 
going to STAY regardless of your pathetic verbal/written 
attacks. We laugh at you. Ha. haha Hahaha But, seriously, 
if you have a legitimate complaint, we'd love to hear it If you 
want to call us to flame us for awhile, don't bother - it won't 
help you out, really It seems that all the bad press you sort 
of guys give us, we just end up with more subscribers 
because of it. Go figure! Anyhow, we do thank you for the 
time and effort you put in for us in getting more people 
reading our material -AND- shortly thereafter SUBSCRIBING 1 
We can't begin to thank you enough Hahaha One last thing 
Uh, we're STILL not gonna accept COLLECT CALLS -BL41 1 



Letter mm fheEJtot 



Hi again, everyone It's been a pretty cool time fore us over 
here at Blacklisted! 41 1 We've talked to a lot of cool people, 
made some new friends, made some new enemies - the 
usual stuff, more or less In any case, it's been a lot of fun! 

I'd like to thank all the people who have supported our 
magazine over the last 2 years It's time for our third year, 
now Let's make it a great year for all of us, ok? 

I'd like to thank a few people in particular: 

Tom Farley - You've been a great supporter and a good 
magazine friend I appreciate all the talks, ideas, referrals 
and laughs I'm sure we'll talk soon Take care, bud. 

Damien Thorn - I appreciate all the great work you've done 
and I hope you will continue to support the magazine through 
the years It's a delight to have you (and your reputation) 
recognized as being a part of the magazine Thanks a ton!! 



there are some instances when we get HUGE articles for 
reprint (I assume) but no name no contact no number no 
way to verify it's origin, etc.. So, at times, I let some material 
(articles) slide into the pit of "what the hell is this?" waiting 
for someone to call us on it and, in the process, giving us the 
contact info we're in need of 

Also, on the topic of sending us a 20 page article by fax 
Could you also send us a copy of it on DISK (IBM or AMIGA 
formats acceptable) in plain TEXT formats to the P.O Box 
address? That way we won't have to OCR it or (AHEM) type 
it in Sometimes 20 pages of solid text is just a wee bit too 
much for this dude. (The co-editor isn't particularly thrilled 
with large documents, either - and there's no amount of 
persuasion I can use to con him into doing it haha) So, for 
all our supporters that like to send us LARGE articles via fax, 
send it to us on disk, as well, if at all possible I would very 
much appreciate the extra effort on your part Anyone that 
makes my job easier is a definitely cool individual in my book 



My Co-Editor - You've been a great help, man! I don't know 
what I'd do without you Thanks for keeping on top of things 
when I didn't have the time to do it. 

The guy who keeps sending stuff to us from Tucson, AZ - 
Man, you've sent me some STRANGE stuff!! But, then again, 
there was a lot of really COOL stuff, as well My girlfriend 
likes the one issue of J Man with the naked pic of Brad Pitt 1 
Hahaha! Some of that material was way out! Thanks again 

Everyone else - THANKS for all the help and support! 
Without all of you, it just wouldn't be the same :) 
Ok, well, this issue is just another example of getting a lot of 
info and trying to slam it into the pages within our magazine 
Now, don't get me wrong I absolutely LOVE getting all the 
material via fax, internet, mail, etc every day In fact, keep it 
coming Send us EVERYTHING you have! I suppose it's just 
difficult, at times, to sort through all of it and decide what to 
print and what NOT to print ... eventually, we'll print nearly ALL 
of it, but we have only so many pages., so, if you've sent us 
something and it's not been printed yet, there's a reason 
Most likely that we just have not gotten to it as of yet. Now, 



Now, on to other miscellaneous stuff In reference to new 
subscriptions. We're getting new subscribers by the handfuls 
each and every single day! That is most cool! Anyhow, I 
have to ask any NEW prospective subscriber a favor. When 
you subscribe (and don't use a photocopy of the subscription 
form in the back of the magazine) PLEASE let us know which 
issue you'd like to start with. It's general practice for our 
subscriptions to start at the NEXT issue if no desired starting 
issue is listed. I know it's caused a small amount of confusion 
and upset in the past because of this simple 
miscommunication So, make sure you LET US KNOW which 
issue you want to start with when you subscribe It's really 
very easy Ask anyone :) 

2600 Magazine. Let me state this for the record I, nor does 
the magazine, have a problem with 2600 nor it's editor in chief 
(Emmanuel Goldstein) So what if Emmanuel knocked us 
down on the internet or wherever else We admit that our 
magazine was inspired by <his> wonderful magazine and we 
did have a lot of similar looking material and I'm sure it didn't 
go over quite well with him... So, let's just drop it 2600 is 
another hackers magazine (well, probably THE hacking 



1st Quarter 1996 



Blacklisted! 411 



magazine) and we're on the same side We do, however, 
have a problem with anyone of their staff members who call 
us just to annoy us. I cannot verify the identity of the few 
callers, but they claim to be related to our competitors 
magazine Whomever you are ...what the hell is wrong with 
you guys? We're after the same thing here, people. Both of 
our magazines are here to inform people of similar 
information, correct? Both magazines are pretty much anti- 
everything, more or less. I really DO think we're on the same 
side So, on both sides of the line; pro-2600 and pro- 
Blacklisted!, let's give up the fighting and move on to bigger 
and better things Like oh, I don't know... HACKING! 
Agreed? 

Private Line Magazine. This is Tom Farley's magazine.. I'm 
always mentioning his magazine Personally, I like it very 
much The topics are not the same, really. BUT, Private 
Line has very detailed information about the 
telecommunications industry It's a MUST READ for anyone 
seriously interested in telephones. Private Line recently 
moved. The new number is (916)742-8035 Give them a 
buzz.. For more info, there's a Private Line advertisement on 
page 35 of this issue Take a peek at it Buy a sample copy, 
at least I'm sure you'll like it 

What else can I mention while I have your attention? Let's 
see... Distribution is extremely high and very VERY 
acceptable. I am happy with the current distribution and such. 
We're still working out a deal with a couple more distributors 
at the time of this writing. Hopefully, we'll have another 
10,000 or more copies into distribution by the time of this 
issue's release date. That would be nice. The more copies 
we distribute, the stronger the magazine will become. Which 
is good for ail of us! Yay for us 

A little bit about articles. Nearly 85 percent of the articles in 
our magazine are submitted by readers This is a very 
significant fact. We print what our readers submit - well, we 
print as much of it as we can, anyway We're starting to get a 
little more material on other subjects such as sovereign 
citizenship, tax loopholes, US Constitution, the general "our 
government is lying to us and screwing us over and this is 
how you fight it" type of material. We print some of it in each 
issue, in the hopes that our readers, as much as they're 
interested in HACKING, are also interested in these subject 
areas, as well I would like to ask all of our readers to submit 
anything they have Such as opinions on certain subject, etc 
Anything for print Feel free to use an alias - I understand. 
Anyhow, of all the articles submitted and printed, a few of 



them are a little outdated, I will admit,, but they're still useful 
in one way or another - 1 won't point out HOW they are useful. 
In fact, some of the information is outright no good anymore, 
but it does give a little more HISTORY into the hacking world. 
That's the whole point. So, when you see some old crap and 
want to flame us or the author of the article for using old stuff, 
pause for a moment and try to figure out WHY we printed it. 
There *IS* a reason behind every article we reprint. Really. 

I'm in the mood for more pictures. Do you have anything cool 
you'd like to have printed in the magazine? If so, SEND IT TO 
US, damnit! I have a huge pile of pictures next to me, but a 
lot of them are of the same things, so we can use just so 
many of them at once. Send us some of those off-the-wall 
pics ...and include a few notes with them, while you're at it. 

Let's see . The Amiga section has been removed at this time. 
It seems that the interest in that section was a little low, so it 
was decided to remove it for now. If we find any information 
particularly interesting about the Amiga and dealing with our 
normal topics at the same time, we'll print it for sure. 

Arcade games If you like them as much as I do, you need to 
call that guy with the ad on page 27. He's got some oldies 
that are pretty dang cool! If you're looking for it, chances are, 
he HAS IT! 

IRC We have someone (Dr No) hosting an IRC channel: 
#blacklisted every evening now. You might want to check it 
out 

Meetings. Desolated Dream is hosting a monthly Blacklisted! 
41 1 meeting in the 305 area code and Cynosure is hosting 
one in the 602 area code Check it out on page 58. If you 
want to host a monthly meeting in YOUR area, please contact 
us and let us know what you'd like to do. We're looking for as 
much support we can get on this one. 

Web site/FTP site We're working on it. Someone has 
offered to help us out in this department, so we'll see what we 
can work out Who knows, maybe we'll end up with the 
happening sites Stay tuned. 

Lastly, our future It's looking good. More and more people 
are gaining interest in the magazine and the support is 
growing quickly. I appreciate everyone's help! Take care, 
everyone ...keep in contact with us, and happy hacking to all 
of you 1 Hope you had a good Christmas!

Are you having trouble finding our Magazine? 



Lately, with the increased distribution, we'd be surprised as hell if you're STILL having problems locating our 
magazine in your area. ..but, we know it can be next to impossible to find Blacklisted! 411 in your local 
neighborhood bookstore at times., there are always exceptions, as most of our subscribers are aware of this. 
It's rather easy to get our magazine where you want it. If you're in a place* that doesn't carry our magazine 
and you'd like to see it there in the future, all you have to do is one of the following: 

1. If you're not sure if the store you're in carries our magazine, ASK THEM! They might be sold out or they 
may have hidden the magazine in a special section or behind other magazines 

2. If they do not carry our magazine, tell the store manager that you would like to see this magazine in their 
store in the future. Give them our number and tell them they should call us so we can set them up with a nice 
stock of our magazine Make sure you let them know how disappointed you'd be if they didn't stock them or 
"forgof'to at least call and TRY to get them in stock. 

3. If that fails, you can give us their address and phone number. Then we will have the chance to call them 
and harass, ahem, talk them into carrying our wonderful magazine. 

4. Subscribe if you don't want to bother with any of the previous methods. 

5. Take a look in Tower Records/Magazines, Barnes & Nobles, Borders or Bookstar.They usually have them 
in stock.

Hi Zachary, 

Love your magazine!! I have a question, I see refrences to a 
"CHROME" box in various articles. What is a chrome box? I 
am familiar with the normal colors, red, blue, black, but I sure 
never heard of a chrome. Addiitonally, an article suggests 
using an infared remote as a or in place of a chrome box. 
Man O Man am I confused. I'd sure appreciate an 
explanation. Thanks!

"Chrome boxes" are devices used on equipped traffic signals 
to change the light to GREEN for oncoming emergency 
vehicles It's usually set off by a series of flashes, much like 
a strobe light (and sometimes flashing high beams in a car will 
do the thck) and in other areas, use of an infrared device 
achieves the same purpose - infrared was used in an effort to 
keep people from thcking traffic signals with their high beam 
headlights. Pretty slick! Anyhow, reports of using a Radio 
Shack stobe light as a "Chrome Box" have come in on several 
occasions We've talked about and made reference to the 
"Chrome Box" in many past issues. You might want to take 
a close look at any back issues you might have. There's a ton 
of info in them! 

Zach, 

I know you don't answer over the internet, but please make an 
exception on this case, as this question pertains to one of 
your advertisers. On page 15 of your 4th. Quarter '95 issue, 
there is an ad for a a 6.5 MHz crystal from a company called 
PVS. Several things make me nervous: 

1 ) No real address (just a P.O. number) 

2) No billing info (how to pay?) 

3) Two numbers, different area codes 

Why all the secrecy? I might be paranoid, but are they for 
real? Do you guys check out your advertisers to make sure 
they are legit?

Vou have to look at this from their perspective.. They're 
selling something which could be considered very 
questionable. Keep that in mind when considering 
purchasing from a company such as this. They might be just 
as worried or even more so than you are. A P. O. box is not 
uncommon for someone or some entity selling a product. 
Billing info? I am sure a check made out to PVS or a money 
order will be sufficient. Two numbers in different area codes. 
This one is odd, I'll admit, but they both go to the same place. 
We know several people who have bought from them with no 
problems at all. If anyone did have a problem, we'd like to 
hear about it. Are they for real? Yes, we know for a fact that 
they are for real. Do we check out our advertisers to make 
sure they are legit? Yes. However, sometimes it's possible 
for an advertiser to fool even US. ..though, it's not very 
common. Want a crystal? I can vouch for the validity of these 
people and what they sell. I've seen results, personally - not 
that I would buy any such for myself, of course. 

Dear Blacklisted! 41 1 , 

In a couple issues back I saw an advertisement for a 
Magnetic Strip Reader/Writer (for reprogramming Credit 
Cards). There was a phone number with the ad and I was 
wondering if you can send me this phone number. I am in 
desperate need of this and have been buying your latest 
magazines just to see if you were advertising it again. Please 
respond and give me the phone # and all the info for it. 



Thanks a lot. L8s

On page 24 of Volume 2, Issue 1 there is an ad. for such a 
device. It's a Cosumertronics ad. Check out their display ad. 
on page 30 of this issue for their address and phone number. 
If this is not the company you're thinking of, let us know and 
we'll do some more looking. It seems that this is the one 
you're looking for, though. Hope you get your stripe 
reader/writer!! 

Dear Blacklisted 411, 

Uh, wanted to find out if that was sent in a plain 
envelope... having trouble finding it in my area. Atlanta 
Georgia. Also wanted to find out do you know of any source 
of DSS or DBS. ..whatever that small dish., any kind of 
hacking information for that? Thanks very much. 

Rich 

Atlanta, GA 

Routed> Phone Message 

Yeah... the magazine is sent in a, for the most part, plain 
envelope. However, there is a return address on the upper 
left corner with the name of the magazine.. It's not fancy, 
though, in any respect, so I don't think it will bring too much 
attention to yourself. People are having trouble finding 
Blacklisted! 411 in all the area 's... I guess it's selling out a little 
too fast these days. DSS hacking. We have absolutely no 
in-depth information to print about it at this time, though we 
know there is a hack or two for it. We're working on it. If any 
of the readers has any info on this one, we'd appreciate you 
contacting us with what you have. Apparently, this is a HUGE 
one that a LOT of people are interested in. Heck, we're 
interested, as well! Anyone? 



Dear Blacklisted 41 1 , 

Good afternoon. How are you guys? My question is on back 
issues. I have volume 2, number 3. Nothing on your message 
says anything about acquiring the back issue set for volume 
1 and how much. 1 see you do a 2 year subscription. Are 
there any discounts for students or anything along those 
lines? I'd appreciate the communications on that. I don't like 
to give my number out over the phone.. God Bless and have 
a good day. 

J. Cole

Routed> Phone Message 

We do not have any first volume back issues available for 
purchase - and we probably won't be reprinting them anytime 
soon with the way things have been going. There are no 
discounts for student or anything along those lines. And, yes,

Dear Blacklisted!, 

This message is for Zachary. If you would like, I will be more 
than happy to explain to you how somebody third party called 
your office number and made it appear as it were coming from 
your fax machine. I'd love to explain to you why that article 
that you printed in your October issue on third party billing 
using AT&T was incredibly stupid and how probably a lot of 
people get back and use it on both of us (message slightly 
garbled and an attempt was made to recontruct the last part 
of the last sentence)

Why? You figure it out. Thanks a billion. 

Dear 411, 

I have a question about changing your social security number. 
I was going to send a letter but I'm kind of lazy this 
weekend... don't feel like doing it.. Do you know what the 
regulations are about being able to change your social 
security number and under what offices you can do that or 
whether or not you want the option to get a new social 
security number if you feel that yours has been corrupted?

The option of getting a new TAX ID. number is well within the 
reach of all Americans. Is it worth your time? Hell yes, it is. 
Especially if your credit is... corrupted... out of whack... (ie: 
credit run up so high and countless number of negative 
statements on your credit report. .haha) Anyhow, we don't 
have the specifics, but you might want to simply request a 
new federal tax number (which is different than a SS number 
but it's just as good as a SS number - and it's 9 digits long, so 
people will think it's a normal SS number) A bunch of credit 
repair type companies are popping up now with this method 
as their selling point. Don 't repair your credit, get a whole new 
credit file. Start fresh, etc.. That's pretty much what they do, 
they start you up with a whole new credit file that's not 
tracable to your old SS number, from what they say. Just the 
other day, I got this information in the mail. It reads: "Speed 
credit... get a brand new credit file within days and secure aaa 
perfect credit for yourself ... blah blah blah.. Anyhow, here's 
their info: Lawyers Credit Clinic, Inc. 13055 Riverdale Drive 
N.W., Suite 500-110, Minneapolis, MN 55448 (612)220- 
1917. Ask them about "Speed Credit" From what I can see, 
they sell you the info on how to obtain the new credit file and 
how to follow through with it. For the price of $89 and they 
offer a money back guarantee. If anyone goes for this, why 
not send us a note afterwards, letting us know what you think, 
etc... maybe pass some of their pricey info. Hope this helps. 

Dear Blacklisted! 41 1 , 

Just a couple of questions. What are the easiest cell phones 
to program, including serial number, without cables, without 
cords, without a PC or toll devices, what not. What were the 
easiest ones past or present to do that with. Second thing 
was I got a complaint from an outfit you had advertised in your 
magazine called CGC A-Z of cellular programming. They 
said you stole their ad from Nuts n' Volts and placed it in your 
magazine. None of my concern, just wanted to pass the info 
along to you.

I just thought maybe you guys might be able to help me out. 
I'm over here in Santa Monica and I've got a telephone jack

Dear Blacklisted! 411, 

Hey, would you be interested in an article on how to build a 2 
crystal red box from a Rad Shak tone dialer? Same idea, but 
the regular crystal is still there so you can use it as a tone 
dialer too. BTW one thing I noticed in your review of Da 
Chronic's program, you didn't mention that it could be used 
to D/L and other stuff for free. You just go to the member 
services menu, (which is a free area) then hit free to pull the 
other menus back up. You can do whatever you want and do 
it for free. Laters

Sure, send us the article. I'm sure everyone would like 
another example of the infamous red box's construction. And 
this particular mod is useful. You're right about the review of 
AOHell and I'm sure some other minor things were omitted. 
Since the time of the review of that program, a couple of other 
versions of AOHell have been introduced into the crowds. 

Dear Blacklisted 411, 

Hello, I just bought a copy of your magazine for the first time

that many people have bought from them and haven't had

crystal. Hope that helps.

Dear Blacklisted 41 1 , 

Hello, this is my first ever email to a 'zine. Got your mag at 
Border's Bookstore, San Francisco. Way to go! I am a 
relative novice to this world, but i love it. my computer training 
has been incredibly eclectic. I learn as I go. But, thanks to 
YOUR publication, not 2600 (which i have been reading for a 
few months) I have gone immediately to my computer and 
tried something. I downloaded AOHell Here's where I got it: 
http://www.intersurf.com/~materva/files.html. Don't know if 
you have this or if you care, but it's a pretty good site, anyway, 
lotsa stuff. Don't know the exact protocol, but if it's okay with 
you, I would rather my email address/name/etc. be withheld, 
as I am getting REALLY interested in this stuff. And my final 
comment: I will NOT got into a big Of rhetoric, but guys - 
remember there are some women hackers/phreaks/etc. out 
there Just think about what you write. Standing ovation 
(man out of his chair in the chronicle for all you sf fans out 
there) to your publication.

Thanks for the kind words and I'm glad we got you a little 
more interested in the whole hacking concept. Thanks for the 
site as I am sure many people will find it of use. It's rare to 
find a woman interested in hacking, so we may seem a little 
out of line at times, I suppose. It's not our intent to offend a 
hacker, but rather get together with him/her and exchange 
information. We're sorry if we made you feel as if we looked 
down upon women in the hacking community. In fact, we're 
far from negative in this respect. Anyhow, it's nice to meet a 
woman hacker. We're an equal opportunity hackers 
magazine, you know, haha Anyhow, good luck in your 
adventures and be sure to let us know your progress. 

Dear 411, 

I commend you on your excellence of your magazine But I do 
have some complaints. Your magazine is by far better than 
2600. But you seem to fill pages with complete nonsense. It 
seems that you just print articles to take up space. 
Ex:ABBREVIATION LISTING...! understand you didnt write it 
but why do you still print it?? Tt stetches from p 39-48! The 
abbreviation listing was printed in your last issue and I find it 
unuseful. Not that I am saying that the WHOLE magazine is 
unuseful, just the abbreviation listing. And whats up with the 
Game tips 'o the month?? Your putting codes for games that 
are ancient. Maybe mortal Kombat III to be up to date? But 
Simcity, Super Ghouls and Ghosts, Super Offroad and PILOT 
WINGS!!?? PILOT WINGS?!? C'mon... But, I do like some of 
your magazine. The software review of AOHELL 3.0 I found 
to be quite informative. Also the Redbox section. But out of all, 
I feel that you have the BEST Cellular Hacking section

Thanks for the commendation. As for the 

complaints ..Nonsense? Ok, I'll give you that one, as there's 
a bit of nonsense here and there. We do like to fill up space 
with as much stuff as we can, I admit it. Not necessarily 
nonsense, but useful information. The abbreviation list was 
requested by several people, so we printed it. Someone 
wants a BBS list for Washington, we print it. Someone wants 
a list of anything, etc.. ..we print it. :) Get the idea? What one 
person finds of no use, I'm sure someone else will. We 
cannot please EVERYONE, but we try... we really try. Game 
tips of the month. I will agree - that's some old shit! Do you 
have any tips for newer games? I'd love to have some, 
myself! Glad you liked the A OHell 3. review and the RedBox 
section. Funny, just recently, we got a few complaints 
regarding those sections. Another example of not being able 
to please everyone, I suppose. The cellular section was 
written by Damien Thorn. We're happy he's taking the time to 
write a little here and there. He's one cool guy. Anyhow, 
keep up the praise and criticism — we need it to keep us in 
check. 
Dear Blacklisted, 



I just got your October '95 issue - Killer issue! You guys did a 
killer job! I love this magazine, man! This is absolutely the 
best! Yeah, I read the article about AOHell version 3.0 and

appreciate it. Keep up the good work. Killer job, man!

Dear Blacklisted, 

Well, this isn't so much as a contribution... more of a 
correction. I don't know who Uhaul is but he really needs to 
catch up. His A-N-A-C local number listing in your October '95 
issue is like bogus beyond belief. The Indianapolis numbers 
are completely wrong. Several of the numbers in California 
lead me to voice mail boxes, fast busy's and generally 
number cannot be completed as dialed. Just to give you a 
little update.. I'm not going to leave my name or anything 
because I really don't care. Your mag's not as much trash as 
2600 said but it leaves a little to be desired. Have fun.

tired of cell phone eaves dropping. I'm not sure if your list of 
"friendly phones" would sell too well. Hmm, if your price is

We're not aware of anyone who sells a complete, working red 
box. I would rather not say, if I did know, as it's a federal 
offense to sell a toll fraud device. It's not illegal to talk about 
it, tell you how it's done, buy the parts to make it, and warn 
you not to use it, etc... but owning one, selling one, buying 
one, etc IS illegal. You should just buy the parts and 
excersise your right to educational conduction of an electronic 
device not intended for any illegal use. That's the smart thing 
to do. Also, glad you picked us up in B&N - they're pretty 
cool. As for back issues... we have all the volume 2 back 
issues available, still... they're $5 each. You might want to 
order a couple while we still have them.

To whom it may concern: Seen your ad in a book at a local

upload info There is a book called GETTING EVEN WITH 
YOUR FRIENDS OR ENEMY'S. I paraphrased the title. I 
guess it's pranks and such. Also, do you know any BBS who 
has info on step by step ways to make a REDBOX that I could

Blacklisted, 

I just picked up your mag at Bookstar in the South Bay area. 
Unfortunately, I got Volume 2, Issue 4. I would have liked to 
get my hands on your very first copies. I've been reading 
another similar publication for years and I have almost every 
copy of TAP (which I was involved with in the later days, 
editor: PredatOr). PredatOr and Aristotle took it over after the 
previous editors lost interest. The older issues of TAP are still 
really kool mags to check out. It is old information, but it 
brings back a few memories. Your mag brings back these 
same memories. I am very interested in attending a meeting 
of Blacklisted! 41 1 members in my area. As far as I can see 
you are established in the city of Cypress. I am a native of 
Southern California, so I will be available to go just about 
anywhere in this area. If your guys have not thought about a 
meeting of this kind, I will be happy to organize it. I go to the 
meetings of the other publication, and I have always thought 
a lack of communication has been a huge problem. I was into 
this shit before some of those guys were winks in their 
daddy's eyes! I don't claim to know EVERYTHING (the fact 
is, I've been out of this scene for years), but I am always 
willing to give info or help out newbees in ANY way. We all 
had to start somwhere, and I give a lot of thankx to the 
hacks/phreakz that taught me when I didn't know shit. These 
newbees are us! And I believe that is what your mag is about. 
Getting info to the masses. Experienced or not. Please let 
me know any information you might have about a meeting.

Dear Blacklist!, 

From what I have been reading in your July 1995 issue, I 
seem to sense that others, 2600, are placing your in the 
position of "bad" guy. Since I have purchased your Summer 
1 995 edition, I would have to say that your are in the front of 
the pack and are threatening to take over as the number one 
most well known/published hack mag! This would pose a 
serious threat to the competition and it would seem that they 
think so too! Thus, they have tried to discredit your fine zine 
by responding with vulgar threats as you described in your 
editorial letter. 

I agree that you appear to be similar in look and feel as 2600, 
but I feel that you out shine your fellow hack at 2600 buy 
supplying the public with a higher degree of content within 
your zine. Sorry EG (emmanuel), but these guys/gals have 
really created a well put together zine for us hackers. This 
should not keep us apart, it should bind us together more 
tightly as hacking is being accepted by the public in general 
(or possibly the media solely, but at least we are being heard!) 
Please let our common interests and the competitive spirit of 
us hackers, to try to create a better form of hacker magazine

If our distribution is any in' , ;ation of our "place" in the "pack", 
I'd say we were ahead a little. With our distribution nearing 
50,000, I think we're growing very strong. Yes, some people 
out there seem to think we're the "bad guy" in the hacking 
community... dunno why, we're just doing what everyone else 
does... writing and passing along information. And, to make 
it worse, we're enjoying it! What I think is pretty damn funny 
is the fact that all the mud-slinging and discredits we're getting 
is causing us to be even more well known than before. More 
and more people read about this bandit-hacker magazine and 
they have to find out what it is for themselves.. They then see 
it and decide something like, "wow, I like this, I'm going to 
subscribe!" and, voila! We have another subscriber. 
Publicity - it sells, no matter if it's good or bad. 

I agree with you completely. Why should two of the most 
popular hackers magazines duke it out? To sell more copies? 
Well, maybe. <snicker>. Seriously, though. We shouldn't be 
at each others throats. We should get together as you 
mentioned. If it means anything, I, myself, like 2600. It's still 
a good 'zine! 

Anyhow, thanks for the kind words and the buttering up 
you've given us. We always like to hear some good words 
about us when we can. As for the question of you being a 
Fed., ahh.. even if you were, the kind words were enough to 
get us to forgive you <laugh> Thanks for the letter. Keep

Dear Editor,

Blacklisted 41 1 , 

I happened upon your magazine by accident. . While 
(searching?) out the computer, electronic and scanner 
publications at the local Joseph Bath Booksellers I was very 
surprised. I must have been under a rock. How could a 
surveillance guru like myself have not heard of Blacklisted, 
and other hackers magazines? I am very pleased with the 
issue that I bought (Volume 2, Issue3 July). 

I did find a few things that I could have done without, though 
The UK brevity codes were absolutely useless And if I read 
one more abbreviation listing I'll puke! And last, does anyone 
really have a use for the information on the CPU encryption of 
arcade games? If the entire schematic is not available the 
why bother with poor quality photos of circuit boards anw, 
CPU's? 

Well, got that off my chest Here is some useful information 
on the "NEW OKI 130C en ... 1. .mely the OKI 1335. 

To get the unit in "Program Mode". 

1 Press "PWR" Power up. 

2 Press "ROL" and "MENU" down at the same time 

3. Press "*626*" 

4. You are in full access program mode. Follow arrows to 
step through each function. 

To get unit in "Test Mode" 

1 Press "PWR" Power up 

2 Press "7" and "9" at the same time 

3. Press "MENU-SND-END-RDL-STO-CLR" if you are quick 
enough, you will see the message "Good Timing" If not, 
power down and start over. 

4. Press "1" and "3" at the same time. 

5. Press "#-0-1-SND-SND" 

6. Press "#-7-9-SND" 

7. Press "1" 

8 Press "#-1-2-SND" 

9. Press "#-7-6-SND" 

10. Press "#-0-9" 

11. Enter the voice channel number (000-332) all cellular 
channels available. Enter only one channel number per rest 
session. 

12. Press "SND" 

If there is activity on the channel number that you selected, 
you should hear conversation while in test mode on that 
cellular channel number. 

Best of luck. Good hacking.

Well, it's a good thing that you happened along our magazine, 
isn't it? Not only have you submitted some useful information, 
but, more importantly, we have another interested reader. 
Thanks for the info and, hopefully, in the future you'll be able 
to submit an article or two concerning your specialty - 
surveillance? We'd love it! Anyhow, on to your criticisms. 
The UK Brevity codes we requested by another reader. How 
could we refuse him? That would go against what we're all 
about. Same goes for the abbreviation listing We have 
another on in this issue, so be prepared - get the barf bag!!! I 
thought the Arcade article was pretty cool. It was a personal

that's the best we have. If we had someone working on

Dear 411, 

I am responding as generally requested concerning a reply in 
Vol.2, Iss. 1. War games, movie phone phreak at the 
payphone using a metal object to cause free call. Yes, this 
was possible at one time but times change and so does 
technology. This method no longer works on currecnt 
payphone technology but, during the time the movie was 
made, 1 983?, it was possible. War Games, code key security 
regarding keypad entry. Yes, it would be possible but as you 
stated, it was a rather crude attempt. Lucky for David, it 
worked! That room that David Lightman was placed in for 
holding was an infirmary. So, no large scale security on the 
door would have been necessary In fact, if you looked at 
how the whole complex is built, it is inside a mountain! Look 
at that security perimiter, and that big vault door! :) .Now you 
for me babbling on and on... Next point, new Hack related 
movie: HACKERS. Oh, where to begin! I just thouroughly 
enjoyed seeing this movie. I can not say enough good things 
about it And I really do not want to go into the technical 
details of plausability. Sufice it to say, this is one kick-ass 
movie! Another great movie would be Sneakers. Well, gotta 
go Need to read the next letter/reply so I can give you my 
feedback! C-Ya L8r.

You know, I've heard many times that the "smashing a metal 
obect in the mouthpiece of a phone" would render it helpless 
to a hacker, but I've never seen it performed other than in the 
movie, "War Games". We all know how ficticious movies are, 
too. Anyhow, I just thought I'd mention that. Speaking of 
security, yeah.. I wouldn't mind having a mountain on all sides 
of me and a huge vault door a-la FBI raid-proof The movie 
hackers was pretty cool. The technology was way out there 
in left field somewhere, but it was a cool flick and the 
producers actually put hackers in a good role - they were the 
good guys. WOW! Amazing! Sneakers. It was a cool movie, 
too... Again, I have to gawk at the technical aspects, but still 
a good movie, when I set my hacker tendencies/knowledge 
to the side. Thanks for the input. Keep it up.

Dear Whomever This May Concern, 

I have many questions regarding the Red Box Review on how 
to build one. First of all I wanted to know if you needed a 
Radio Shack Tone Dialer with memory or without Will both of 
them work or do you have to have a special one And second 
of all I need to know where I can obtain a chip and how to 
change it Please send instructions in further step by step 
directions. I have already bought the Radio Shack Tone 
Dialer without memory for storage and opened it but do not 
find the CPU where the picture shows Maybe the picture is 
incorrect. I don't know but I really need details. Thank you for 
your time.

Yes, you need a dialer with a memory. Since you already 
bought the wrong dialer, what you need to do is take it back 
and get the one WITH the memory. If you can't take it back, 
don 't take it back and just go buy the right one. The "chip" you 
refer to is actually a crystal. You need a 6. 5Mhz crystal Buy 
it from PVS (their ad. is on page 37, I believe) ..it'll cost you 
$5. Take the old crystal OUT of the dialer, replace it with the 
new one (you need to know how to solder) and put it all back 
together. Program 5 "s (stars) and then play them back.. 
THIS is your red box tone That's how it's done. It is 
ILLEGAL to use a device to defraud a payphone. If you do 
the cnme, be prepared to do the time It's illegal to even own 
one. Be sure to practice some safety measures when doing 
this, alright? Buy the "How to build a red box" video tape from 
East American Company They have a classified ad. They'll 
SHOW you how a red box is made.

Dear 411, 

I just discovered your mag at, of all places, my local Barnes & 
Noble bookseller, and I must say that I instantly fell for it 
(issue 2.4). Therefore, my first inclination is to tell you how 
great the mag is and how impressive the distribution, but 
since you probably already know that, I won't bother' But to 
the point. I'm excited to build my very own Red Box (the last 
guy on the block i'm sure. I must apologize for seeming naive 
about the world of hacking, but I've taken it upon myself to 
teach myself from the ground up, learning C. etc - but 
building a red box is too easy to be passed up!). Anyhow. I 
do have a few questions about the red box that were not 
answered in the issue I just picked up. 

1) The manipulation and reconstruction of the tone dialer is 
easy enough. However, I'm lost as to where to buy the 6 5 
MHz circuit. Are they relatively easy to find (Radio Shack?) 
in. say, Seattle? Short of mail ordering one for $5 00, where 
do I go to save a few bucks and some time? 

2) Where else can I find inexpensive tone dialers besides The 
Shack? 

I guess that's it about the red box. I'd really appreciate any 
advice or true wisdom you guys can spare Oh, before I 
forget, how safe is the 102880 phone for free technique - 
really? And how does the caller ID block work - do you dial 
*67 before you dial the numbers or...? Again, a 1000 thanks 
for producing such a great mag - It's good to see that 
someone is out there challenging conventional thought Keep 
it up - and as soon as I can afford it, I'll subscribe - PROMISE ' 
got milk?

our magazine in Barnes S, Nobel!! Yay for B&N! Anyhow, no 
need to apologize for being interested in something. We're 
here to help you out, bud. the 6.5Mhz crystal can be 
purchase from any number of places. We have an advertiser 
in the magazine (on page 37) called PVS. They sell they 
crystal and we've heard nothing but good comments from our 
readers who have purchase from them. Tone dialers.. Stick 
with Radio Shack dialers.. They appear to be the only large 
source of useful/modifyable dialers. 102880 phone for free 
isn't very safe at all. In fact, about the only "safe" call is a 1 
minute or less call made from a payphone to someone you 
don't know, hah a Nothing's very safe anymore ... or rather, 
anonymous. They KNOW what you're doing. First rule: DO 
NOT MAKE THE CALL FROM YOUR PHONE/HOUSE. Glad 
you wrote in. Hope to see you again. 

Dear Zachary Blackstone, 

My name is Joseph Rogers (aka Gambit Of The Guild). I have 
been reading your magazine for some time now and wish to

something to hackers that 2600 killed off by thinking that they

world for a year and a half, I have learned and done more 
than some will in their entire life time. With this letter I have 
added an article that I would like to see printed in your next 
issue. Having a hacker that has seen, done, and knows more 
than many. I belive that the young hackers of the world will 
see that there are those that know their shit and are more 
than willing to share and teach. I have also sent an e-mail to

for offering the support we're always in need of. If you have 
anything to submit in the future, do so by all means. There's 
no such thing as too much information! 

Dear Blacklisted 41 1 , 

First off, I would like to say ever since I found your magazine 
at the local Barnes & Noble that I've been hooked. Besides 
being a current subscriber, I even ordered all your back 
issues so as not to have missed any interesting info. Being 
an employed engineer and somewhat techno-freak, I am 
always looking to learn and apply knowledge especially as it 
pertains to current technology that not many people on an 
average basis understand or know about. Your articles are 
very informative and have given me various "science 
projects" with which to entertain some of my free time. 
This brings me to several questions that I have concerning an 
article entitled "How to Build a RED BOX" from Volume 2, 
Issue 4. First, there are actually two articles on the RED BOX 
topic in this particular issue. They both pretty much advocate 
the use of either 6.5 Mhz or 6.5536 Mhz quartz crystals to 
replace the actual one included in the auto dialer. Well, my 
friends and I used a 6 5536 Mhz crystal in our particular 
autodialer that was purchased at a store that rhymes with 
radio crack. Secondly the autodialer was not programmable; 
I do not know if this was a requirement seeing as pushing the 
"*" button 5 times should give you the same result as 

programming 5 "**s" shouldn't it? Needless to say, I tried 

the RED BOX on several phones (ones that were believed to 
be non-COCOT; which should amount to any ones located 
out on the city streets) and it did not work. After putting the 
box to the voice part of the receiver and pressing the "*" 
button five times and dialing a local number, I still received an 
audio message from the operator stating to put in 25 cents. 
So I guess my questions can be summarized as 1 .) Do I need 
a programmable autodialer or do the manual 5 "*"s" work?, 
and 2.) should I install a 6.5 Mhz rather than the 6.5536 Mhz?, 
and 3.) do pay phones located on usual city streets (not 
located in a business) usually work best or could you please 
better clarify which type do? Please respond in kind ASAAP. 
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Ah, yet another Barnes & Nobel customer - happy customer, 
that is. Ok, regarding the red box - You MUST use a 
programmable dialer. I guess this was not stressed enough 
in the articles in the previous issues... Pressing **" 5 times is 
not good enough, as timing is very VERY crucial to the proper 
fuctioning of the device. I'm sure you can understand this. 
So, yes, you need the programmable dialer. You can use 
either 6.5536MHz or 6.5Mhz. The original plan called for a 
6. 50Mhz crystal to be used as it is the part which will bring the 
red box to the closet possible tones required. However, the 
6.5536Mhz crystal works just fine because the tone produced 
with this replacement falls within the error allowed. So, either 
will do. The telephone company owned phones work and the 
COCOTs do not (customer owned coin operated telephones) 
The way you tell is this. What's your local phone company 
called? Look for a pay phone bearing this name on it. It's that 
simple. Hope this will help you along. Keep in touch. 



Dear Blacklisted 41 1 , 

The Missing Link was asking for a wardialer for the PC. Well, 



the best one that I can think of is Code Thief. I used it for a 
while before I put up by board. And Missing Link, this 
program don't cost nothing to get; just don't 'round askn' 
everyone for it for it. You can get busted for doing it, so be 
careful, the they can tell if you are war dialing. BTW, I've 
gotten your mag for a while; I've been 'round for sometime 
now, and I think that Blacklisted 41 1 is one of the best zines 
a newbee could read to get started off on. And for warning 
for everybody: always dial *67 before you do any hacking. I 
found out the hard way that even the smallest places will have 
a caller id box. Also, am I the only one that has paged 150 
different people and put in the number of the first person in

block the telephone companies from recording your number 
with their ANI equipment. Just keep that in mind. Keep the

THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES OR WHO IS OBLIGATED TO PAY THE NATIONAL DEBT 

By Kedar R. Cohen 

Cb en en en en en en □ en en cm en en en en en en en en en en en en cD 
The national debt is referred to in the constitution in the 14th amendment as the public debt. This amendment also says that 
the validity of the public debt shall not be questioned. Does this mean that we the people and our posterity cannot question 
the validity of the national debt? I will answer that the public debt only applies to 14th amendment U.S. citizens and 
U.S. persons. That means the rest of us can question the validity of the public debt! 

Essentially this means persons born in Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa are obligated 
to pay the national debt and immigrants legally admitted to the United States. We the People and our posterity are people 
conceived in the fifty sovereign states do not owe the national debt but can choose to pay it if they so choose and how much 
we want to pay. 

So why are we the people paying the national debt as if we are obligated to do so? It is because we have contracted ourselves 
into this obligation. We did this in any number of ways. We or our parents applied for a social security number claiming to be 
U.S. citizens which is the fourteenth amendment citizen. They did it even earlier than that. Our parents sold us into slavery 
when they got married and applied for a marriage license and again when they got us a birth certificate. We also contracted 
ourselves into 14th amendment citizenship when we filed an income tax return 

The good news though is that all these contracts listed and others not listed such as our driver's license, and voter registration 
are all adhesion contracts and all are fraudulent because none of them required us to renounce our we the people and our 
posterity Article 4, Section 2, Clause 1 Citizen of the several States status. By not fully informing us and telling us the truth, 
the whole truth and nothing but the truth, the government committed fraud into getting us to enter into the contracts of 
adhesion. Since these contracts are fraudulent, they are null and void and we are in truth still sovereigns. But because we 
entered into these contracts, from their point of view they presume we are subject U.S. citizens and U.S. persons. 

Maybe you feel an obligation to pay the national debt, but know that you are not obligated to do so. As a sovereign you have 
the right to decide yes or no and how much. As a subject you are obligated to do . If you want to re-assert your power to 
choose, you have to declare your sovereign status even though you are a natural sovereign. 

Before declaring your sovereign status, though first understand you are a natural sovereign by studying a book called Vultures 
in Eagle's Clothing by Lynn Meridith. Buy that book through me for $42.95 Second study this book. Third declare your 
sovereign status, the freedom papers are in this book or get them custom tailored through me for $25.00. 

One you have declare your sovereign status, you are now free to choose whether you want to pay off the national debt by 
choosing to pay or not to pay off the national debt by choosing to pay or not pay the income tax. You can also make payment 
on the national debt by paying the US Treasury and telling them to direct this contribution to payment on the national debt 

If you do not want to pay the national debt bu you want your money to go directly to run the government then you must make 
your payment to the Treasury of the United States of America and instruct them, none of this money is to go to pay the national 
debt and can only go to pay for government services. The IRS and U.S. Treasury are not true government agencies. They are 
private corporations contracting their services for the federal reserve banking system which is also a privately owned bank and 
not a government agency. 

As long as we accept federal reserve notes as money, the national debt cannot ever be paid off because the national debt is 
measured in federal reserve notes. Federal reserve notes are monetized debt. The federal reserve bank buys from the United 
States Treasury $1 .00 for 2.5 cents and then lends it back for $1 .00 adding $1 .00 to the national debt. A debt cannot be paid 
back in the same medium. The government goes into debt when they borrow federal reserve notes and federal credits from 
the federal reserve bank and they transfer that debt to us when we accept federal reserve notes and units. We the people 
have the right to receive debt free and interest free money for our labor. The Constitution only gave Congress the power to 
coin money and regulate its value. This money that Congress can issue is debt free and interest free. This money is simply 
barter certificates so that We the People can peacefully and productively trade with each other. These barter certificates get 
their purchasing power from the productivity of the American people. These barter certificates were called United States Notes 
which were fully redeemable in gold and silver coin. 

In 1913 Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act which included a buy back provision which is much less than our present 
national debt. This act also gave the federal reserve bank the power to issue federal reserve notes and units as money. A 
power that only Congress has and cannot delegate. The Federal Reserve Act is Article 1 , Section 8, Clause 1 7 legislation and 
is only constitutional in Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa and nowhere else! 

Since the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, no United States Notes (U.S. Notes) have been issued U.S. Notes are monetized 
American productivity Federal Reserve Notes (F.R. Notes) are monetized national debt. The Federal Reserve Act cannot be 
forced upon the American People domiciled in the several states. From 1913 to 1933 F.R. Notes replaced U.S. Notes but were 
at least redeemable in gold and silver coin which is the only legal tender money of the sovereign states and still is the only 
legal tender money of the sovereign states. From 1933 to the present F.R. Notes have not been redeemable in gold coin. 
Since 1968 F.R. Notes have not been redeemable in silver coins. F.R. Notes are now redeemable only for other F.R. Notes 
or you can say not redeemable in any other substance A note is a legal term and means redeemable in something other than 
itself. A note that is not a note redeemable in any other substance is not a note at all. 

The Constitution only gave congress the power to coin money and regulate its value and this power cannot be transferred to 
anybody else Taking away our U.S. Notes, gold and silver coins as money is a crime against the American People. It is 
Robbery. 

Now the money changers and the banksters want to take away our federal Reserve Notes and give us debit cards and bodily

implants to identify us and all our transactions. This will take away our privacy and create a cashless society. This is most 
definitely unconstitutional. UFO abductees complain of being implanted. Are we going to allow our government to practice 
UFO technology? I hope you answer in a resounding NO! 

Wake up people, the handwriting is on the wall. F.R. Notes are not true money or lawful money. Find out what true money is 
Understand what money is and demand that debt free, interest free money be restored in These united States of America. 
Here is an agenda to restore Good Money back into America. 

1 > All people conceived in the 50 sovereign States are true We the People and our Posterity Citizens of the Several States 
and These united States of America and have the right to question the validity of the Public Debt.. We have the right to work 
and trade and be paid in Lawful Money. 

2> We entered into Fraudulent adhesion contracts and superimposed 14th Amendment U.S. citizenship on top of our natural 
sovereign We the People Citizenship and gave up our right to question the validity of the public debt Therefore revoke your 
14th Amendment subject U.S. citizenship and reclaim your natural sovereign We the People Citizenship. Do this by declaring 
such to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Contact me for info on this declaration package. 

3> Demand from all levels of government that congress start to reissue U.S. notes and stop authorizing the issuance of 
Federal Reserve Notes. Replace U.S. Notes for F.R. Notes. 

4> Buy out the Federal Reserve Bank by the procedure outlined in the 1913 Federal Reserve Act and buy it back with US 
Notes, not F.R Notes. 

5> Once Congress owns the Federal Reserve Bank, Congress can then order the audit of the Federal Reserve and see if the 
former owners should be prosecuted 

6> Any balanced budget amendment should include a provision that will forbid the federal government from ever going into 
debt again. This provision will forbid the formation of a national bank ever again. 

Now it is your turn. What are you going to do? Are you going to allow the continued existence of the Federal Reserve Bank, 
Federal Reserve Notes, and reduce or eliminate the national debt by paying it off with federal reserve notes? Do you think this 
is possible? Or are you going to reclaim your right to question the validity of the public debt by reclaiming your original 
Sovereign We the People Citizenship and demand as a Sovereign that Congress do its appointed job of issuing debt free, 
interest free United States Notes and re-monetizing gold and silver coin as real money and buy back the federal reserve bank 
with United States Notes and after that audit the federal reserve bank? You have been presented a real choice. What are you 
going to choose?

Subject: BASICS PART II 

Ok, so now you know how you were beaten out of your Citizenship of a State What does it matter? Why care? What 
difference does it make? Wouldn't you really rather be watching a TV sitcom and drinking beer, as opposed to worrying about 
these "silly" legal distinctions? Lets compare Citizenship of a State vs. US citizenship and see. 

TAXES: Most of the people who become aware of Citizenship of a state do so because of a fight with the IRS. Well, the 
"United States," by virtue of tax treaties with foreign countries, can tax its "US citizens" anywhere they may be. A "US citizen" 
living in any of the several states of the Union is a resident alien of that state. (Look at govt, paperwork and job 
applications... they all ask you to state that you are a "US citizen" and a "resident" of California, be aware that resident means 
resident alien.) As a "US citizen" you are subject to the jurisdiction of the "United States" and therefore taxable by the IRS 
You are also subject to the California income tax. The Franchise Tax Board is taxing you on your "franchise" or privilege they 
are granting you to make a living here in California. After all, you are not a Citizen of California, but merely a resident alien 
from that foreign country known as the "United States." 

RIGHT TO TRAVEL . A Citizen of any of the Several States United can travel in his own private property (car) as a matter of 
RIGHT. The "US citizen" being a resident alien in any of the 50 States United can be regulated He must take a revokable 
privilege called a driver's license. The state can then force him to obey regulations like speed limits, seat belt laws, and 
motorcycle helmet laws, all for "his own good." 

RIGHT TO OWN PROPERTY... Only a Citizen of a state can actually own property in a state "US citizens," being resident 
aliens, may enjoy the use of property but they do not have an absolute right to it, as far as ownership. Cases in point: the 
state will give you color of title on your own land. 

This gives you certain rights, but, ultimately what you are doing is renting that title from the state It is 6 called property tax 
Also, you as a resident are subject to all of the various regulations governing the usage of that land, and building codes and 
safety laws. If you don't know what I am talking about, ask your average home owner. Another case in point: your car. You 
buy a car, and you never see the bill or origin or bill of sale. That goes directly to Sacramento. They issue a color of title called 
a pink slip. It gives you certain rights, but again, ultimately you are renting that color of title from them for the registration fee. 
They own the car, you don't. You put a sticker on the rear plate of your car, called a registration sticker. Look very very closely 
at the sticker under bright sunlight some time. You will see a repeating octagon pattern of lines, inside which it says "Official 
Use Only" which can only possibly be on a govt, owned vehicle, by legal definition. This is how they can get away with

! PRESS RELEASE - JUSTIN PETERSEN | 

! 2/15/95 ! 

!■ -._-. — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — .._..___ _J 

Justin Tanner Petersen, 34 years old, 6 foot, 155 pounds. As a computer hacker he was once associated with the Legion of 
Doom and wrote articles for their technical journal. Justin used the hacker name "Agent Steal." The Legion of Doom is a now 
defunct hacker group that was located throughout the United States. Justin's interest in hacking was primarily out of curiosity 
and his fascination with all forms of technology. Mr. Petersen is a hacker in the true sense of the word. 

Justin has worked in the telecommunications and computer related fields since he was 1 8 years old. Prior to his arrest he had 
been working for a large private investigation firm for over two years. There his responsibilities involved computerized 
information retrieval and electronic counter surveillance (debugging). The firm was known to have worked on computer fraud 
investigations. 

With the exception of an eight month period in 1990, Mr. Petersen has lived in and around Hollywood since 1984. During that 
eight months he lived in Dallas, TX while working on an extensive case for the private investigation firm at which he was 
employed. 

In 1989, Justin became associated with Kevin Poulson. At this point, Poulson was already a fugitive stemming from charges 
in San Francisco. He was on the lam and would soon be featured on T.V.'s Unsolved Mysteries. When the FBI learned of their 
association, they started investigating Justin. A year later Mr. Petersen was arrested in Dallas for using his computer to 
illegally obtain credit cards- He was also charged in L.A. for illegally using Pacific Bell Computer systems to access telephone 
lines. He in turn used the systems to guarantee that he was the correct caller in radio station phone in contests. Kevin Poulson 
was also charged in this scene. 

After four months in custody, Mr. Petersen signed a plea agreement which transferred his case to L.A. In addition the 
government agreed to drop several charges. Included in those charges were allegations that Mr. Petersen had in his 
possession information regarding other undercover federal investigations. It has been reported from other sources that Mr. 
Poulson was able to access a list of Federal wire taps. It is believed that Mr. Poulson may have shared this sensitive 
information with Mr. Petersen. Justin will neither confirm nor deny this. He does acknowledge the fact that as part of his plea 
agreement he was required to sign a non-disclosure agreement regarding national security related matters. Also included in 
the deal was what would turn out to be an extensive cooperation agreement. Mr. Petersen was called upon to not only educate 
several agents in the art of computer hacking, but to aide in their investigation of other computer hackers. The FBI provided 
him with an apartment, two computers and money for expenses. His cooperation lasted for two years and he was involved in 
over a dozen cases. 

During the two year period that Justin worked for the FBI, he became involved in night club promotions in his spare time. In 
this effort to leave computers behind, he successfully ran 4 different clubs. One of his clubs included the now famous "On 
the Rox", a private club located in West Hollywood. 

A one time musician and sound engineer himself, Justin is a well known figure among the Hollywood music scene. Most know 
him as an attractive, fashionably dressed night club promoter. People close to him know him as intelligent, articulate and 
extremely loyal to his friends. Within the computer hacker community his talent and accomplishments are noted. However, 
most frown on his decision to investigate other hackers. 

When Mr. Petersen started working for the FBI, it was suggested that he investigate Kevin Mitnick. The bureau had received 
information that had led them to believe that Mitnick was still involved in hacking. Justin did not know Mitnick personally prior 
to this but he was able to establish contact. A case was opened and an investigation ensued. 

Several months later, Mitnick discovered that he was about to be arrested and he in turn fled, it is believed that Mitnick was 
able to obtain sealed covert documents that revealed Mr. Petersen's cooperation agreement. At this point, Justin's friends, 
family as well as himself became the target of numerous hi-tech pranks and attacks. This harassment continued for over a 
year, however, the FBI was unable to apprehend Mitnick. At one point Mitnick attempted to have a drivers license photo of 
Justin faxed to him at a Kinkos Copy Store. What resulted was a foot chase where he narrowly escaped arrest. Out of fear, 
Mr. Petersen fled. Regardless of his motives, the FBI would not tolerate his illegal actions. 

During Justin's two year tenure as an informant, The FBI never directed him to commit any crimes. It has been alleged that 
he fraudulently collected disability benefits during this period. As the result of a motorcycle accident in 1985, Justin had his left 
food amputated. Mr. Petersen had been using a different name to collect benefits. This name however had been used by 
Justin as his primary name for over ten years. For all practical purposes he had changed his name. The allegations are merely 
an attempt by Mitnick's associates to create more problems for Justin. As the result of this, Mr. Petersen's benefits were 
temporarily suspended. 

Justin made several attempts to rectify his situation with the FBI Needless to say, they are very upset with him for has actions 
and form embarrassing the bureau. Justin remained a fugitive for almost a year. During that time a few newspaper articles 
appeared regarding him. These were initiated by Mitnick associates in further attempts to create problems for him. Indeed 
they did. He was apprehended a few weeks later on August 29, 1994 at 2:00 a.m. Coincidental^, he was only two blocks from 
the FBI's Los Angeles office in Westwood. Two of the agents responsible for Mr. Petersen during his cooperation were those 
who captured him. The were acting on a tip. 

Mr. Petersen remain in Federal custody in Los Angeles. Several newspaper articles have appeared since then with 
misconstrued facts and in one case he was misquoted. Thus, the need for this release. Justin is due to be sentenced on 
November 27th.

Sixth Column Notes 

By Non'Serviam 



When I began to delve into the fraud of the Infernal Rape Service (IRS), I began by reading a series of books 
written by Irwin Schiff. His writings are based on legal facts. He has written several books such as: 

o The Federal Mafia 

o The Biggest Con: How the Government is Fleecing You 

o The Social Security Scam 

o The Great Income Tax Hoax 

o How Anyone Can Stop Paying Income Taxes 

o The Kingdom of Moltz 

o and others 

He was UNLAWFULLY put in phederal prison because he stopped "volunteering" for the phederal income tax 
(tribute). I have read the court transcripts of the case and it doesn't take a genius to see the fraud and 
cover-up committed by the IRS, US Attorney, and the Federal Judge. 

Irwin Schiff was to be released from federal prison in December of 1993, however it has been discovered that 
he was released early! 

He will be touring the country immediately, doing seminars, speaking on radio addresses, tv and cable 
interviews. During September he will be in California, and then the fun begins. 

I have already been in contact with Irwin Schiff. We will be meeting with him personally when he arrives. He 
has recently bought a modem and is curious about the implications of Cyberspace. (If he only knew) 

I have not received any information as to his current schedule. Information will probably be available in 
mid-September. I recommend that if you have the opportunity, go to his seminar and listen to him. You will 
be amazed! 



The Irwin Schiff Seminar 



In our last issue of DnA Magazine we gave detailed information about Irwin Schiff. Mr. Schiff is author of "The 
Federal Mafia", and other books which give an in depth expose of the federal government's terrorist tactics in 
enforcing the federal income tax system. A system of taxation that has been proven to be one hundred 
percent voluntary. 

[I am not going to debate the issue. If you want info, call DnA Systems for it, or start carrying the information 
in your area of the country/planet] 

Two days before the seminar, I received a phone call from Mr. Schiff. He had received my message, and was 
very interested information about Cyberspace and how it could be used to distribute information quickly. He 
explained that he had a portable computer and an external modem, but didn't know how to work it. I asked if 
we could get together the evening before the seminar to talk and teach him on how to use the modem. He 
agreed. 

Pazuzu, Corwin, and myself drove out to meet with Mr. Schiff the next evening. We met him in the hotel's 
lounge. After a quick round of introductions, we went up to his hotel room to work on his computer. 

After two hours of detailed instruction and information exchange, we called it a night. Mr. Schiff invited us all 
back to the seminar as his guests, and wanted to speak with us again, after the seminar. 

During the two hour period of tutoring, I explained to Mr. Schiff the benefits of using Cyberspace to distribute 
information quickly to people all over the country and the world. He was very interested in the possibilities 
and intends to become active in Cyberspace. 

We also cut a deal on ordering his books. We will be selling his books through DnA Systems shortly. Our 
prices will be lower than retail, and this material can't be found in most stores. 

We arrived at the seminar on time, and took a quick walk around the area. I personally was expecting IRS 
goons to be watching somewhere. Within ten minutes of the seminar, Mr. Schiff announced, "O.K., who are 

Blacklisted! 411 1st Quarter 1996 17 



the two IRS agents here now? I always have two sent out." A little giggling lingered about the room for a 
couple of seconds, and when he didn't get a response, "Oh well, they probably are sent out just to make sure 
I quote the law correctly." 

Since I have been researching the Income Tax Hoax for almost half a year now, most of the beginning 
information was old news. Then, Mr. Schiff went into detailed information on how to prevent the IRS from 
attacking your bank accounts. Since all IRS seizures of bank accounts are done illegally, it wasn't hard for 
Mr. Schiff to discover a way to prevent it from happening. If the IRS had agents in the room, they would have 
been pretty pissed off. Bummer. 

After a two hour period, Mr. Schiff announced a break period. At this point Pazuzu had to leave to begin a 
tape backup of the entire system, and Corwin had other duties to perform that day. So basically, I was alone 
at this seminar. If any other local users showed up, I didn't recognize them, and I'm sure they didn't want to 
be recognized. 

I cannot put into text the faces of the other people at the seminar. During the break, I had the unfortunate luck 
to see people who have been harassed by the IRS' goose stepping agents for years. Then, in the space of 
two hours, they see IRREFUTABLE proof that the income tax is voluntary. Their faces were nothing less than 
reality shattered. 

The seminar was over at around 5pm, but I stayed until around 8pm talking to people. I was trying to offer a 
viable solution to an immediate problem. The problem is this: Communication. After the seminar, people will 
go home, read Mr. Schiff s books, talk to their friends and family, but what then? My solution was simple: Get 
a modem. By using a modem, these people could stay in instant contact with news of current events and new 
information. I spoke for nearly three hours to several people. Some of whom have modems, and who do call 
DnA Systems now. 

All in all, the seminar was good public relations. We made many contacts, and we now have the opportunity 
to maintain stock of Irwin Schiffs books and audio cassettes. I hope that Mr. Schiff does call DnA Systems in 
the near future. 

Information Abounds 

In the past few weeks, I have set up dialogues with a few sovereign citizen organizations that are interested 
in using Cyberspace as a medium for instant communication. Some of the time I have to teach them about 
the basics of data communication, but the end result is always beneficial. 

These organizations are sending us information to put in electronic text format. We are getting more 
information on Driving vs. Travelling, revoking your Social Security Number, and other things. 

Income Tax Time Approaches 

We draw closer and closer to the time which is signalling a cry for freedom for many people across the nation 
today. Soon, we will (or most of us that is) be getting our yearly letters from the IRS. Again, the IRS is 
overwhelmingly committed to assisting us poor taxpayers in understanding and complying with the tax laws. 

Nothing could be further from my mind. However, every time I call an IRS office to "quote" the law, I get hung 
up on. I guess the agent I talked to skipped his tax law course. But seriously, I want to follow the law to the 
letter, but no IRS agent will answer my questions. Hmm, guess I'll go to H&R Block to see if they can help. 

Hopefully we can get some audio/video of this.

THROBBING MODEMS 

Reviewed by Damien Thorn 

Dr Sigmund Freud postulated that every human being is driven by two opposing forces. One is known as a life force, which 
typically manifests itself through behavior such as love and procreation. The other is a destructive force that is said to push 
us toward self-destructive behavior. Freud's life force typically wins the battle, and causes us to seek out an intimate partner 
in our lives. When accompanied by raging hormones, we often find ourselves looking for love (or sex) in some pretty strange 
places Even Willie Nelson produced a song documenting this phenomenon. 

As males, we've probably heard all of the tips over and over. Good places to meet women extend to unusual locations such 
as the produce aisle in the local supermarket. Unfortunately, I haven't had much success chatting up the ladies while I'm 
fondling the zucchini at Safeway. 

Now there's an entirely new environment for seeking love and companionship. The Internet and online services No surprise, 
really We've been moving online in huge droves, setting up virtual communities centered around proprietary corporate 
services like America Online or local BBS systems. Whether you know it or not, sexuality is the lure that brings many. 

When a site on the World Wide Web pops up that carries pornography, it's not uncommon for it to get more hits in a day than 
Intel's site did when the floating point flaw in the Pentium processor was announced There is no escaping the fact that online 
citizens are interested in far more than using file transfer protocol to download the latest shareware games or device drivers. 

Those that hang out in chat rooms or Internet Relay Chat (IRC) are already familiar with the phenomenon of online 
friendships, virtual sex, and matchmaking that occurs online. But with only about three percent of the population using the 
Internet, the majority of people simply have no clue. That's where former Penthouse Magazine writer Joshua Bagby steps in 

Bagby is the author of Throbbing Modems - a new book from Index Publishing Group that sets out to explain "how to find 
romance and adventure on your personal computer " And it does just that. 

Throbbing Modems is a book that really should come bundled with every modem sold It starts with the very basics of 
communicating online, even including a tear-out reference card documenting common abbreviations and emoticons that are 
peculiar to online chats and e-mail From there it moves along to explaining the operation of things like IRC, private chat, and 
electronic mail. 

Where Throbbing Modems differs from other such books is that it gets seriously involved in explaining basic social issues In 
other words, Bagby doesn't just show readers where to go in search of friends, conversation and cybersex, but how to develop 
and sustain social relationships. 

This is pretty important My observation has been that most people who are already online know how to get where they want 
to go, but a large percentage have no clue how to act once they get there We've all encountered these people, usually 
flaming others who show up from AOL, and basically presenting themselves as rude, arrogant idiots 

Well, guess what guys, there is an ever-increasing percentage of women coming online everyday Many of them tend to lurk 
or adopt masculine sounding handles, which leads to the incorrect conclusion that there aren't many ladies online Then 
again, who can blame them for remaining in the virtual shadows? Who wants to be attacked by an online pack of guys who 
are crashing and blundering through chat rooms and newsgroups like hormone-crazed neanderthals? 

Let's face it, if a guy like Rush Limbaugh can find a wife online, so can the rest of us. And think about it for a minute Any 
woman you meet online already knows how to use a computer! Try finding a technology savvy chick in your average bar, and 
you might be looking for a long time. 

Okay, I'm being very sexist here and perhaps I should be more objective since Throbbing Modems is a book for both men and 
women. The major subjects covered include: 

- Meeting by modem -- what it is and what it's not 

- Using different resources (the Internet, national online services, local BBSes) 

- Cyberdating and the incredible allure of communicating with strangers 

- Logging-on tips for the novice in cyberspace 

- Attracting the right kind of attention with public message postings. 

- Capturing someone's attention with stimulating e-mail 

- Learning how to become the kind of person online people want to chat with 

- Enjoying cyberspace without going bankrupt - cost-effective BBSing 

- Developing online intimacy with the cybermate of your dreams.

- Dealing with the different environments men and women face online. 

- Recognizing potential trouble online before it drags you down. 

- Bring cyberspace relationships successfully into face-to-face reality. 

Rexxxxxx, author of Modem Love, says 'Throbbing Modems will get the important body parts of both men and women 
throbbing like crazy, and I don't mean just their hearts. I recommend it to everyone who loves sex, intimacy, love, and 
passion, and I sure hope that describes you." 

The bottom line is that this is a cool book both for the clueless newbie and for those experienced online. For the experienced 
among us, the $17.95 cost of the book is worth it just for the tips on how to make online relationships work. You may not go 
from being a propellerhead to Don Juan overnight, but you can find comfort in the fact that the advice isn't coming from a 
wrinkled Dr. Ruth. Instead you can get the hot skinny from the same guy who wrote for the magazine you used to read with 
one hand late at night after your parents were asleep! 



Throbbing Modems is available at major bookstores, or may be ordered directly from the publisher.

Who's Afraid of Cyberporn? 

by Adam Selene 

The Internet is a diverse microcosm, a society of people from around the world who share their thoughts, ideas and 
information. Just as in our society, this microcosm has people with different views and opinions, and different morals. What 
is proper and acceptable to one person, may not be so to another, just as in the real world. On the Internet, you can access 
any information you want, you can be as social as you like, and you can live your virtual life as you wish, with none of the 
limitations of the real world. However, there are now numerous groups that are attempting to assert control over your virtual 
life, from the Religious Right, to politicians seeking re-election. One of the hottest topics these groups are currently using to 
promote their agendas is the issue of Cyberporn, or pornography available in an electronic form. 

The virtual world of the Internet offers the ability to become whoever you want to be, shedding any inhibitions that you would 
otherwise have in the real world. However, even though you are able to hide behind a different personae on the Internet, there 
is no way to hide your humanity. Creating a personae in the virtual world allows you to explore your true self, to explore parts 
of yourself that you never knew existed, or had repressed. In our puritanical society, we often repress our sexuality, so it is 
no wonder that one of the most common things that people explore on the Internet is their own sexuality. They do this in many 
ways, such as writing their own fantasies for others to read, or by reading other's fantasies, by retrieving explicit pictures or 
videos, or finding other like-minded individuals and "hot-chatting." People who have not experienced this form of self- 
exploration are quick to denounce it and attempt to control it because they don't understand it. 

The media has stirred up the sentiments of the few people that feel pornography online is morally wrong and have amplified 
in to a major issue. In their rush to produce stories on this phenomena, the media has created a number of myths, mostly 
suggesting that hard-core pornography is readily available to children. These stories suggest that kids can unwittingly stumble 
across porn while doing such innocent acts as researching a schoolpaper, or that pornographers are sending their unsolicited 
wares to children, thus corrupting them. There are also a number of reports citing that child molesters are obtaining access to 
children and robbing them of their innocence through the Internet. These reports have parents up in arms, since they don't 
understand computers nearly as well as their children often do, and because of which, they feel they have no control over what 
their kids do or see. 

Time magazine, one of the largest and most respected publications in the country printed a front-cover article on cyberporn 
that was based on one study which was severely flawed, without testing to see if the findings of the study were true before 
they published it. In their article, Time reported that over 83% of the resources on the Internet are pornography, and the article 
is written to suggest that hedonism runs rampant online, just waiting to twist the minds of innocent young ones. The basis of 
their story was a study that an undergraduate at the Carnegie Mellon University in which the student cataloged the 
descriptions of over 917,000 adult files obtained from local electronic bulletin board services. The main flaw with this study is 
the student only logged descriptions of files, and didn't actually retrieve them. When his sources were later checked, it was 
found that most of the descriptions had no files to back them up, or they turned out to be non-pornographic. In addition, he 
surveyed adult bulletin boards, and not the Internet, thus providing incorrect numbers. Time magazine later realized that the 
basis of their report was flawed, and printed a retraction, after the damage was done. 

Anti-cyberporn activists have waved these mis-reported stories as banners for their cause, in an attempt to stir parents into

' THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO HACK YOUR WALLET " 

(and the bad guys want to look in it, too) 

i by Bill Hayes i 

h_ ____ — ____.... — ____________________ _j 

As If we didn't have enough to worry about You can't use a cordless phone or cell phone without concern that person or 
persons are listening. Maybe even ripping your number off. Well meaning clerks scrutinize your negatives at photo labs. 
Your credit or debit card information circles the globe 3-4 times every day. If your phone is listed, you get junk calls, junk mail, 
maybe even threats and harassment If you're unlisted, you pay more, and the very people you do want to reach you, can't. 
And if you use the very bad judgement to purchase a big ticket item with a credit card or personal check, your privacy is kaput. 

Ahh, but there's always cash. Sure, cash leaves no footprint, no paper trail, no means of backtracking the transaction. But 
what if it did? And what if this was to help you and protect you? 

You probably already know about it Our currency is changing, and in fact much of it has changed Bills denominated in $5, 
$10, $20, $50, and $100 have all been irrevocably altered with a magnetic stripe, imbedded within the body of the bill. This, 
of course is for our national protection, to stop counterfeiting, which according to some in the Fed is a national crisis. 

There are other reasons for the changes in our currency, and these will be discussed in detail later First, we must view what 
changes are here and are coming soon, to a transaction near you. 

Current: mag stripes in all new bills (Series 1990 and later) $5 and higher. 

Late 96 to early 97: the $100 bill will be changed, with a larger portrait (in this case, Ben Franklin), slightly offset from the 
center, with special ant-counterfeiting features embodied in the bill. Size and shape will remain identical to the current C-note, 
with color tone shifted slightly more toward the grey. 

Late 97: the same treatment for the $50 and $20 bills, with the introduction of the new $1 coin, the prelude to the elimination 
of the $1 bili. 

1998: all remaining denominations of bills, $2 through $10, will now be altered to match the configuration and functionality of 
the original changeling, the $100 bill 

Approx late 1999 or 2000: attrition and/or recall of all remaining non-converted bills, and the death of the $1 bill. Most people 
will not care (At roughly this same time, the penny will finally be terminated, with all prices being rounded up to the next 5 
cent point 

So. why should you care, and what does this have to do with privacy or hacking? But read on, and you will see why the future 
holds so little privacy for what's in your wallet, briefcase or purse. 

The current governmental excuse, that is to say explanation, is that these changes will all but eliminate counterfeiting, thereby 
enhancing the value of the dollar for use overseas OK, fine, but is that the big deal for protecting us? For protecting me? 

No, and that's just the point People will basically not care that their currency is changing, and will not care about the very 
changes that are occurring to their money The current and future explanation will be believed or ignored, and people will be 
as careful or as careless with their paper notes as they are right now Big mistake 

Right now (assuming you are reading this in 1996), you can have money, that is paper US currency, in your wallet, purse, 
briefcase, handbag, or laptop computer case, and so long as you are not held up, drop your money carrying container, or 
leave it behind when you are in a store or restaurant, your money is fairly secure. A wallet could have $5,000 in it, or 3 $1 bills 
and a bunch of receipts, cards, phone numbers, and various pieces of paper, and be the very same thickness. No one could 
tell without looking inside, right? (I'm assuming here that you do not pass by a cash sniffing dog, which are in vogue by certain 
governmental agencies involved in the war on drugs. Interestingly, these beasts actually do smell the cash, not the drug 
residue that is supposedly on all our money ) 

Technology, however, marches on. The magnetic stripes which prevent counterfeiting are detectable, and not just point 
blank A single, mag striped bill can be detected from several meters, and even through walls using current, rather cheap 
detecting equipment For the impact of this little revelation to be meaningful, you must understand the STATED and REAL 
purposes of the stripes, and how they actually work 

Sometime next year, I go into my favorite magazine store, pick up a few tech zines, maybe an out of town paper or an 
Investor's Daily, with an industrial size cup of kona. The bleary-eyed clerk takes my $50 bill, and passes it over a small 
scanning-type device, which says on the checkout display terminal $50 bill/50 OK, or some such. A $50 bill doesn't just have 
a mag stripe in it to be there, it actually emits an electromagnetic signature specific to a $50 bill. Consequently, a $20 emits 
the signature of a $20 bill, and not that of two $10 bills Each bill denomination emits a distinctive, detectable and decernable 
electromagnetic signature. This is big. and I'm amazed at nobody has figured out the next step. The government sure has. 
And, so, I'm sure, will a number of technically able bad guys. 

The very next step — and I'll go out on a limb here and say the Fed may admit this — is to check the cash of people leaving and 
entering the country In case you do not realize it, it is the government's business whenever you are involved in a transaction 
of $10,000 or more in cash, or leave the US, or enter from anywhere, with one cent more than $10,000 I will not bore you 
explanations, suffice it to say the Fed REALLY wants to know, and if you do not fill out the appropriate forms (CTR or CMIR), 
you are in deep doodoo, and your money, all of it, can be seized, and possibly even forfeited Gone. Forever. And now there 
is an electronic means of detection 

24 1st Quarter 1996 Blacklisted! 411 



Many travelers do not bother to declare their currency, hiding it in their pockets, socks, bags, etc., or passing it around among 
other travelers in his group. And it is far too difficult and time consuming to shake down every single person who leaves and 
enters the country. Remember, when a Customs Inspector is looking for drugs, he might just miss wallets, purses, disk 
pouches which contain the big green. Wouldn't it be great for the Fed if they could look inside such inconveniences as 
clothing, luggage, pouches, and wallets, to detect money — down to the last $5 or $2 bill? Think of how much protection we 
could give the American people!! they must think to themselves. 

This is not just "Big Brother is Watching You" ranting. This is the mere statement and explanation of evolutionary technical 
progress, the confluence of electronics, Federal law enforcement, the continuous intrusion into the privacy of people 
everywhere, and the need to protect. Remember, this is only the FEDERAL Government detecting your cash, and only at 
borders, the ingress and egress of the country. What if local and state agencies were to procure 'this technology? Can you 
even imagine the protection we'd then be subject to? 

Using detection devices that are currently in existence (but fortunately used for other things, at this time), some well-meaning 
local bureaucrat could cruise by your home and detect that $7,500 you have stashed in your mattress for that trip to Hong 
Kong. Standardized and miniaturized cash detectors, distributed throughout the United States, could keep a close count on 
hoarded currency. Remember, this is just for national well-being. The elimination of the underground economy, the detection 
(for prosecution) of caches of drug money, the tracking of otherwise untraceable cash transactions, and from afar (maybe 
hundreds of meters, with larger amounts of cash, or at a directed target). And of course, the boosting of the US tax base. All 
to protect you and make your life better. Feel better yet? 

But this isn't all of it — maybe not even the worst of it. 

It used to be, when a technology came along that could be used for good, it took a considerable amount of time for it to be 
used for bad. Let's make the rather strained assumption that all governmental uses of this technology will be good. But let's 
consider the alternatives to good and protection. 

As almost anyone with the technical knowhow to understand half the articles here in BLACKLISTED! has the wherewithal to 
listen in on a cordless or eel phone conversation, covertly photograph technicians fixing or upgrading the organs of our utilities, 
and/or hack various of the machines of our society, then consider a technical criminal with merely this much knowledge of our 
new currency. Knowing further that most people carry SOME cash, and keep SOME amount of money in their homes, this 
would motivate our bad guy to get/make/obtain some cash detection equipment. You go to where the fish are biting, right? 

Our bad fella would then have, for a few thousand or a few hundred dollars (probably the latter), the same capability 

as local governments to detect, count, and sort out his targets — remotely. [Do not think for a minute that the Fed would allow 

it's top eschalon technology down to the local government level: that degree of protection is just not necessary] 

So, our bad guy can remotely (from several meters, or a couple of stories up on a building, or probably through one wall), note 
that a man who lives alone, and who is gone a great deal, keeps a large number of $20s and $50s somewhere in his 
apartment. How about having a spotter at a second or third story window, doing the remote sensing of people walking by. A 
male target of 6'3" would probably be avoided, even with a bunch of money detected. But a woman or small-statured man 
with a few hundred dollars, exiting not far from a bank or credit union, would be an ideal target for the partner on the ground 
for the "hit." And these citizens, just going about their business, are ratted out by the contents of their billfolds. 

So, what to do? Is there a solution to detection, or are we, by the very nature of advancing technology, doomed to broadcast 
to bureaucrats, Feds and Cops, and all who can afford the electronics? No. There are readily doable, low-tech solutions to 
this problem, and every reader should begin soon to "block" his money. 

What is "blocking" money, and how will it help keep you secure in the broadening electronic environment? You block the 
signal, the electromagnetic signature, that the currency gives off. This is not hard to do, but it requires new habits to be 
applied by the user — that's us — so that we are not detected, just viewed as another boring non-target. In your home or in your 
car: keep your cash in a metal box, or metal-lined box, and well secreted (under your seat covered by stuff, better still in your 
trunk under the spare if in your car, in your kitchen under pots and pans, under a large appliance, or in your garage under the 
dryer; never in a closet or drawer as these are the "normal" hiding area). 

Cash with you: keep your bills wrapped in aluminum foil, with one of those flat, flexible refrigerator magnets inside the foil with 
the bills. This will tend to disrupt and dissipate the signature of the bills. Naturally, if you're carrying $42 on you, and your 
largest bill is a $10, you probably don't need to go to this trouble. BUT, if you're going to get paid, withdrawing cash for a trip 
or a purchase, or just carrying cash because that is your habit, take a square of foil and a refrigerator magnet. Wrap it all up 
while still inside, where you receive your cash, put the whole thing in a front pocket, if you can. Every little edge makes you 
more secure. 

BTW, if you are using a metal box for home storage of cash, put several of the flat, rubbery magnets on the OUTSIDE of the 
box. Someone would actually have to find the box to know there was cash in it, the cash's signature would not be decernable 
to remote sensing. 

Don't try this at home: a few weeks ago, I was on a radio talk show, discussing privacy concerns and the new issue of 
currency. One caller said he worked in a recording studio at an NPR affiliate, and used bulk tape erasers (large 
electromagnets used to erase audio and video tapes, as well as floppies and DATs) to erase the information on the back of 
his credit cards. He asked me if bulk erasing would work for cash. Yes, but don't do it. Reason: soon, all bills will be scanned, 
like credit cards, or items at a store, for their signatures. If a $20 bill does not register a $20 electromagnetic signature, it will 
be considered a counterfeit, and will be forfeited. By you. This in fact is the original intent of the mag stripe, about one inch 
from the left hand side of new series bills (look at one with a magnifying glass) Someone with good paper and an ultra-high- 
res laser printer can't duplicate the mag-stripe — so please don't bulk erase your bills. When scanning of bills becomes 
common in late 96 or 97, your erased bill is considered counterfeit, and you'll lose it. This just covers the remote, electronic 
aspects of our new and improved currency. But you do need to be informed — the new series bills, starting with the Franklin 
$100 next year, will be trackable as well. Cash will no longer be anonymous for most retail transactions. 

Blacklisted! 411 1st Quarter 1996 25 



The new C-note, and later ALL BILLS DOWN TO THE $2 BILL, will have a tiny bar code secreted in at least one place on the 
obverse side (front) of the bill. Maybe several places on the bill. I have not yet been able to determine if different 
denominations of bill will have the barcode secreted in different places.' Now, how does this make your transaction no longer 
anonymous? 

Image capture, recording, and archiving has gotten dirt cheap as have most things electronic Ever get a picture ID card at a 
membership club outlet, like a Sam's Club store? The camera is no longer a passport-type Polaroid or some such, it is a tiny 
Sony CCD cam, your image is dumped into a Mac or 486 type PC, and your membership ID card is generated, while you wait 
(and not very long), voila, almost instant picture ID, without the cumbersome need of taking a picture. 

Coming very soon to a reality near you — while your bill (probably $10 or higher) is being scanned to make sure it is A-OK, your 
picture is being taken (actually, your image is being captured) by a tiny CCD camera on the wall, indistinguishable from a 
security camera The bar code on the bill is logged below the captured image. Images, by the thousands, will be archived on 
zip disks, 8 mm tape, CD-WORM, almost anything that security firms, AND GOVERNMENTS, can agree on. Figured it out 
yet? 

Anywhere you are, you know that to avoid leaving a trail, you don't use checks, credit or debit cards, don't use ATM's, you 
purchase all your gas and food and everything else with cash. Of course. But, in the very near future (the infrastructure is 
being laid out now, folks), your cash transactions will come with your image being captured to tape or to disk, and the 
barcodes of the very money you spend being linked and archived to your image. Anywhere you are, you'll be tracked. 

Now if you're a typical law abiding citizen (well, maybe that's going out on a limb —you read BLACKLISTED!, and I write for 
em), this might mean nothing to you. Yet this seeming built-in alibi will confirm what you DID or DID NOT do, and this will be 
the cause of more problems, more loss of privacy, than you can ever imagine Or maybe you can. 

So, readers, be careful with your cash, stay as private as possible, take your own action, and fight, every way you can, these 
intrusions into our privacy. You must take whatever action you seem fit. If you are of a political action persuasion, your 
Representatives and Senators are surprisingly interested in what you want, in what concerns you. Privacy concerns me a lot, 
and my congressmen know just where I stand. Do you speak out, write letters to the editor, maybe even write articles, call 
talk shows, make your voice, your concerns, heard loud and clear? Just because the Government's plan of action seems to 
be set in stone doesn't mean that stones can't be broken. Privacy is not given to you, but it is taken away from you by your 
own inaction Hide your bills (that is, block them from detection), take secure counteractions, start taking action of your own, 
and be heard. The privacy — and life — you preserve may be your own. I'm taking action every day You doing the same?

privacy issues, and has a monthly privacy update line at 1-900-369-2327. Please feel free to contact Bill through

Big Brother Watching YOUR Gambling 

Casino gamblers beware, a new electronic system called Pit Boss, marked by Casino Data Systems keeps, track of each bet 
and winnings on table games The new system due out next year is considered to be the most detailed system available to 
track betters' activity The system keeps a historical record of each wager, theoretical win value, and other information. The 
company already has a similar system in place to monitor betting on slot machines when gamblers use cash cards instead of 
coins 

Casino Data Systems' system generates player profiles including name, nickname, games played and wagers made The 
system also includes data on the players social security number, address, date of birth, and anniversary dates In addition the 
system keeps track of the games played, and can generate a theoretical win value based on average bets, times played, 
game speed, and player skill for each game type. 

If you sign up for a casino cash card instead of using cash, chances are your every move is being tracked. Typically a 
customer fills out a survey to get the card The survey also asks information about the player such as hobbies and music 
preferences. The casino's state the information is for internal marketing purposes only Card holders stand to win free tickets 
or coupons for participation in the program. Participants are not required to put their names in to gain these cards, but almost 
everyone does 

The system is one of the best marketing tools a casino has. By tracking players they know if a someone plays nickel, quarter, 
or dollar slot machines, and if they play for a half hour or several hours at a time It is important for gamblers to know what 
information is collected when they use these cash cards, and make a decision as to if they wish to participate. 

Auction of HDTV Licenses May Be Canceled by Senate 

A special Senate panel fearing a difficult battle with broadcasters and other special interest groups has announced plans to 
cancel a proposed auction of digital television licenses The FCC had planned to auction, to the highest bidder, channels in 
the top 25 markets These channels would allow broadcasters to continue transmitting the current analog signals while adding 
digital HDTV signals during the 1 5 year transition period to the new technology The FCC was considering the auction to meet 
a congressional mandate passed earlier in the year directing the FCC to raise an additional $14 billion in an effort to make the 
FCC more self supporting The budget measure under consideration by the Senate, and already passed by The House calls 
on the FCC to raise the money without charging TV broadcasters for the second channels. 

Many groups such as Americans for Tax Reform, a Washington based anti tax group, have criticized the giveaway, claiming 
that the free transfer is a "multi-billion dollar gift to one of the least neediest groups in the country at the expense of the 
American taxpayers " They and other groups have argued that broadcasters should pay for the spectrum needed to transmit 
the HDTV signals 

The FCC is also currently considering other issues relating to digital TV, including the amount of mandated HDTV 
programming, length of the transition period, and if broadcasters should be given the freedom to offer other communication 
services on the airwaves allocated for HDTV Supporters of digital television are concerned that this deliberation will delay the

New Money 



If you haven't heard, the Treasury Department is introducing a new $100 bill in 1996 The government agency reacting to 
increasing incidents of U.S. currency counterfeiting, has announced the new design to foil such attempts. The redesign 
represents the most significant change to the greenback since 1929, when the current look and size was established to 
combat counterfeiting in that era. Treasury officials state the changes are needed to thwart the rising threat from high tech 
copying techniques using color scanners, personal computers, and color ink jet printers These technologies are allowing 
counterfeiters to produce passable fakes 

The new bills contain several differences from the current design Franklin's portrait is 50% larger to make it easier to 
recognize and added detail will make it harder to copy. A polymer thread will be embedded in the paper that glows red whin 
held under an ultraviolet light. The bill will include color shifting ink, which changes from green to black Additionally the new 
note will include a watermark that will be unproduceable on a color printer or scanner 

The Treasury Department has stated that the old design bill will still be honored and not recalled, however, the new bill It 
expected to become common in the United States and abroad Treasury officials have also announced that new designs foi 
other U.S. notes will be introduced at the rate of one per year, eventually replacing all current designs of bills

Russian sailors get power back for sub base - at gunpoint 

Ever dream of picking up that gun or assault rifle and making the electric company turn the power back on? Well, Russia's 
Northern Fleet did just that after the local electric company cut power to one of its nuclear submarine bases. The action was 
defended as being necessary to prevent an "emergency" situation. Heavily armed sailors in bulletproof vests showed up at 
two substations and forced the duty engineers to switch back on the power... or else. 

This power struggle is only one of a long list of incidents nationwide reflecting just how cash strapped the Russian military has 
become since the 1991 Soviet collapse. Others include the central command for the Strategic Rocket Forces, which control 
Russia's ICBM force had their electricity cut off for failure to pay overdue bills. Electric officials cut power to a flight control 
center in southern Russia while dozens of planes including President Boris Yeltsin's were in the air. Since 1992, there have 
been at least 16 cases of power being cut off to military installations for nonpayment In the past, power was eventually turned 
back on after at least a partial payment. 

New Spy Satellites to be Launched 

The Clinton administration is currently spending billions of dollars to upgrade America's aging spy satellite network The new 
systems are designed to replace satellites designed to monitor Soviet military targets, with a new design more useful in fast 
moving regional conflicts. 

One top-secret project is aimed at developing a highly flexible series of satellites code named 8X that will provide government 
agencies such as the CIA and the Pentagon, with tremendously expanded photographic coverage, a benefit making them 
much more useful to military commanders facing an array of potential battlefields around the globe 

the 8X series of spy satellite will replace the aging KH-1 2, the current workhorse of the spy satellite community. The 8X, under 
development at the Sunnyvale, California based Lockheed Martin Corp will be a behemoth weighing as much as 20 tons, and 
will be capable of gathering a photographic image of an area up to 1000 square miles showing details as small as 6 inches, 
fxperts estimate that each 8X satellite could cost as much as $1.5 billion to produce, not including launching costs of $350 
million, or the elaborate ground equipment needed to process the data gathered The 8X series, due to be operational 
between the years of 1998 and 2000, will be far larger and more capable than any spy satellite in history. 

Overhaul of the nations fleet of spy satellites was a response to complaints from military leaders such as General Norman 
Schwarzkopf, after the 1991 Persian Gulf War, that the existing spy satellite network was unable to provide the timely 
intelligence necessary for a fast paced tactical war Each photograph from the current generation of spy satellites can cover 
an area of approximately 100 square miles To cover a much larger area such as 1000 square miles, the satellite had to 
repeatedly cross an area sometimes taking days 

The older satellite technology was fine for the Cold War era, when military planners only needed to monitor submarine bases, 
missile silos, and other defense installations When these satellites were used during battle, they were unable to provide rapid 
updates. During the battles in the Gulf War, the KH-1 2 satellites could take several days to view the entire theatre of 
operations, which consisted of hundreds of thousands of square miles 

The 8X would solve the many shortcomings of the earlier designed satellites by covering 800 to 1000 square miles in one 
photograph, with approximately the same resolution as existing satellites, approximately six inches. The resolution would vary 
based on the angle of the shot, and atmospheric conditions. The new technology will give the Pentagon a revolutionary 
capability, allowing military commanders to watch the entire enemy maneuvers over a very large field of battle

Brain Dead Computers? 






A San Francisco based database software company is attempting to lead development of a new kind of low cost computer 
system. Oracle Corporation has announced that it is developing three inexpensive Internet access terminals that the 
company plans to license to consumer electronic manufacturers. 

Company officials contend that personal computer manufactures make machines that are too expensive and too difficult to 
use for many consumers. Oracle is among a growing legion of computer software and hardware vendors who believe that the 
growth of the Internet will dramatically change the PC landscape, and make way for these new inexpensive "network servers." 

The newly designed systems have three major designs. One resembles a compact computer system with the keyboard and 
monitor tightly coupled, with only a power and phone connector. The second looks like a fancy telephone with an LCD display, 
and the third sits atop a TV set allowing the television to access the Internet, and manipulate the information gathered The 
systems would not be in their computational power, but in their ability to send and receive information efficiently. All three 
systems could sell for less than $500. 

Oracle is not new to this market Teaming up with Apple Computer Corp., they developed a TV set top system for three video 
on demand trials. The computers manage movies on demand, and home shopping services. Other companies are also 
interested in this concept Computer manufacturer Sun Microsystems Inc. has announced plans to develop a similar kind of 
machine Compaq Computer is also looking into the technology but as of yet no products have been announced. 

Oracle has not yet decided which operating system these new machines will run, but they have already ruled out Microsoft 
Corp's Windows 95 saying that it is much too difficult to use Apple Computer Inc is a possible candidate, but company 
officials wish to license the technology broadly, and Apple has not been interested in that kind of strategy to date. Apple's 
dropping market share is also of concern to Oracle officials, who ironically are interested in acquiring Apple Computer Inc

Dear Blacklisted: 

I am writing you in reference to your article on page 35 of the 
4th quarter issue concerning bogus phone bill charges from 
unknown long distance companies. You see, I was victimized 
3 months ago in a similar scam by a long distance company 
that put about $450.00 worth of 900 *and* 800 phone 
numbers to my phone line. You heard me right. 800 numbers 
billing at the rate of $71.80 per phone call. I spoke with AT & 
T about how was it possible for an 800 number to charge I 
was told that they use a repeater type thing to do some 
forwarding technique to a 900 number. Basically, this means 
that you CAN call an 800 number innocently and get charged 
some truly unbelievable fees for using that number. 

I did not make those calls. I called the two long distance 
carriers who had these 800 and 900 numbers, (ATI and 
American Telnet) One of them graciously removed the 800 
numbers, but the other was real nasty and vicious about their 
charges AT & T was not able to help in this case though they 
tried because of the recent deregulation. In fact, the company 
claimed that even if a hacker hacked into my line, I would be 
held responsible. I found out from AT & T and from some legal 
friends that this was a whopping lie. I ended up writing a letter 
to the PUC concerning the action of this company. (I theorize 
that ATI and American Telnet may be one and the same 
playing a bait and switch tactic to force payment one way or 
another). They even went as far as to play a tape they 
claimed was me on the line It was the voice of a kid saying 
two words How do I know that it was not some employee's 
kid they taped? In the end, I was able to get the final charges 
removed with more assistance from AT & T PUC has not 
replied to my letter. 

t yearn for the days before deregulation. Sure, the phone 
company was monolithic, but it was steady, and none of this 
sort of billing funnies occurred There is no laws at this time 
for this sort of consumer fraud being perpetrated by long 
distance phone carriers who seem to operate by victimizing 
innocent people at random. 

I propose a concerted effort to regulate these sort of 
companies I know everyone bags on the main phone 
company, but we have MORE to fear from tiny companies 
who think nothing of defrauding anyone in sight. I found out 
that this sort of fraud is VERY common right now 

REGULATE THE TINY LONG DISTANCE CARRIERS 
BEFORE THEY DEFRAUD YOU LEGALLY!!!!!

Routed> Mind Link 

You've been caught up in a very common type of fraud. It 
happens all the time. Luckily, you read your phone bill and 
caught it ..and did something about it. Even if a hacker 
hacked onto your line and made the calls, you'd be held 
responsible? Bullshit! Call those twerps at long distance calls 
r us and tell them YOU DID NOT MAKE THE CALLS AND 
YOU ABSOLUTELY REFUSE TO PAY THEM. They can't do 
anything but say, "ok, sir. thanks for using blah blah blah". . 
end of story... You have to TELL THEM what you're going to 
(and not going to) do If you let them boss you around even 
a tiny bit, they'll scare you into giving up your money. The 
PUC is completely USELESS... the phone companies own 
them... That's all there is to that Don't even bother dealing 
with them The only people you have to deal with is your local 
carrier and your long distance carrier between the two of 
them, you can have all fraudulent charges removed Be 
BOLD with them and don 't let them throw you around They'll 
listen to reason as long as you don't back down

Dear 41 1 , 

The article in your mag about phone 4 phree doesn't work. 
AT&T came on the line and said: please dial number 
(blah, blah, blah) or hold for an operator. Then they said : say 
collect calling, calling card, person to person, or hold for an 
operator. They did not have an option for 3rd party calling. 
Maybe they fixed their system or maybe its a local option or 
something else. There has to be a way to bill a 3rd party, but 
I can't seem to find it. Please inform your readers of this 
situation and keep them advised. 

DABLER 

(location unknown) 

Routed> Internet E-Mail 

Ah, people hold for an operator and charge it third party with 
the use of the operator. I don't know how people can still get 
away with this, really. If the charges are billed to a person, 
and he's smart enough to read his bill, he'll notice the third 
party billing going on and call his (or her - hey, I remembered) 
phone company (local or long distance) and has the charges 
removed simply by denying the calls! Sometimes they'll give 
you a line of BS like 'someone HAS to accept the calls on 
your end or they won't go through" that's complete BULL 
SHIT. The problem is, the LD phone companies don't do their 
part and really try to keep this from happening... as a result, 
bogus charges are billed every day and it causes a ton of 
problems... I think it'd be in their best interest to do this the 
right way. Keep an operator online to make sure it's real, etc. . 
Even then, it's easy to fake them out.. There's always a way, 
with real people, different LD carriers, etc.. There's always a 
way to charge a call to someone else. Many times people put 
a "third party call block" on their line and there's pretty much 
no way around that one. Other times, people charge third 
party bills to the pay phone right next to them... just be 
prepared to answer it. haha "Yeah, I accept the charges" 
Anyhow, this is a huge topic that deserves a detailed article 
on it. Maybe we'll print one soon - covering all the aspects. 

Dear Blacklisted!, 

I had to laugh when I read that "Phone-4-Phree" (submitted 



by UHauL) excerpt in the current issue. This dude thinks he's 
found some k-kOOL way to phreak by using AT&Ts automated 
operator system. Billing your calls to a 3rd party using this 
system' is a sure way to get yourself a call from an AT&T 
representative asking you why you are making unauthorized 
third-party calls. And if you think using *67 is going to keep 
your ass clean then sorry, but you're stupid. That's like 
thinking you can detect a phone company tap by calling a 
tone sweep. Go back to Phreaking 101. 
An explanation: 10288 is simply AT&Ts equal access code. If 
you don't know that already then you're either very new at this 
or very lame. I'll assume the former. Now then, you may use 
this code from any phone to ensure your call is placed over 
AT&T (for instance, if you wanted to make a calling card call 
and wanted to make sure you're billed at AT&T rates). 
I don't know why UHauL chose 416-453-xxxx as the particular 
NPANXX to use when asked for the 3rd party number. 
Perhaps there is a breakdown in AT&Ts validation and they 
allow 3rd party billing to any number in that exchange. But I 
doubt it. I assume one is to keep guessing the last 4 digits 
until one hits a number that will allow 3rd party billing. 
Anyway, when all is said and done, the person who you 
charged the call to will not only see (on their next bill) the 
number you called, but also the number you called from, ie. 
YOUR HOME PHONE NUMBER. (Attempting Caller ID block 
will do you absolutely no good whatsoever). So, knowing 
what you know now (simply speaking, that this is phraud and 
not phreaking) either use a payphone to do this or find a 
neater trick. Sincerely, 

DASTAR COM

supporting their beliefs. Politicians have jumped in on the act, proposing new bills in an attempt to control cyberporn. Senator 
James Exon (D - Nebraska) introduced the Communications Decency Act of 1995 into Congress, a bill which was passed by 
the Senate that would impose unrealistic restrictions on online service providers. Presidential-hopeful Senator Bob Dole (R - 
Kansas) has introduced The Protection of Children from Computer Pornography Act of 1995, a bill that, according to Wired 
magazine, is so complicated that not even it's sponsor understands it. Both of these bills have been called unconstitutional, 
as well as unenforceable. 

With all the myths over protecting children from cyberporn flying about, perhaps we should dispel a few of them. First of all, 
anybody who has ever intentionally looked for pornography on the Internet will be able to tell you that it is extremely hard to 
find. The only place where it is readily available is in the Usenet newsgroups - text stories can be found in the alt. sex... 
newsgroups, and pictures can be found in the alt.binaries.sex... newsgroups. However, the stories are merely innocent 
fantasies, and you have to spend enormous amounts of time to download the files that contain the pictures, but even then they 
are in a format that requires technical feats to decode that are daunting to a computer-literate adult, much less a child. Web 
sites that feature porn are often difficult to find, and even when you find them, they always have a disclaimer warning you that 
you are entering an adult area before you even get to the actual page. When you do reach these pages, the pornography is 
most often soft-core. 

A myth that has parents running scared is that pornographers are actively recruiting children, or that molesters are getting 
their hands on them. Logic plays a major role in this myth - what does the pornographer stand to gain by sending his wares 
to a child? In the case of molesters, they can't get their hands on your children if they don't know where they live. Responsible 
parents would teach their children to not give out any information about themselves. 

I believe that parents should calm down and realize that the media and special interest groups have been taking them for a 
ride. Pornography is a part of our culture, so naturally it exists on the Internet. However so does a wealth of information and 
knowledge that no child should be deprived of. Children cannot see pornography unless they consciously choose to, any child 
that sees a pornographic image does so by their own choice. I personally feel children who choose to retrieve pornography 
should be allowed to, so that they can be exposed to reality, and because if they don't do it online they will do it in the real 
world, as children have done for decades. However, the child should be counseled on what they see or read, so that they 
know and understand the truth. The parent is the child's teacher and guardian, rf a child is affected by pornography, it is 
through the fault of the parent, not society. Active parenting is the best solution, the best way to know what your child is getting 
into is to talk to them. If you are offended by pornography, instill those values into your children so that they will be too There 
are programs available that will screen out all references to sex and ail known sexually-oriented sites on the Internet. 
However, nothing is foolproof except good parenting.

(Continuted from page 15) 



confiscating your car it they catch you scoring some weed, or how they can require you to carry insurance, or why they can 
search you car without a warrant. OF COURSE THEY DON'T NEED A WARRANT TO SEARCH THEIR OWN PROPERTY. 

STATUTORY LAWS There are numerous laws on the books that specify "crimes" which are not really crimes at all, because 
they don't really involve an injured party. For instance, some of you enjoy smoking Hemp from time to time, which the govt, 
has made a crime "to protect you from yourself for your own good." None of those laws applies to the Citizen of any of the 50 
States United because the penal codes in the states apply to residents and not Citizens. 

THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS ... The Citizens of any of the 50 States United are not bound by various statutory 
gun laws, a careful reading of which will prove that they only apply to residents. A Citizen (capital C) qualifies as one of 'We 
The People" and the posterity, and therefore qualifies as one of "the people" as specified under the second amendment to 
the US constitution. Most people who think they are fighting for gun rights are in fact fighting for statutory gun privileges. They 
use the term "erosion" as applied to the second amendment. That is simply not true. The right to keep and bear arms cannot 
be infringed, when applied to Citizens. Residents, well that's another matter. They never had a RIGHT to keep and 
bear arms in the first place. 

So what is the moral of the story? Well, if you are not bothered at all or not outraged by the theft of your heritage and your 
Citizenship and your rights as a free American, go back to your beer and your tv sit com. But, if you want to do something 
about it, then this p board is for you. We will keep you informed, and educate you on how to restore your status as 
a Citizen of California. Lex Rex will be happy to answer all your questions.

Subject: The draft registration notice. 

I read the draft registration notice/registration application. I suggest you pick up a copy some time, Lex Rex, it makes some 
interesting reading. For instance: 

They insist upon a zip code They actually use the word "required" in connection with the zip code! Well, according to the 
regs of the Postal Service, the zip code is voluntary As you are well aware, use of the zip code places you in a federal 
regional jurisdiction, geographically. Therefore, you must state, under penalty of perjury, that you live geographically within a 
federal region. Of course, they have a space for your social(ist) (in)security number. Oddly, they don't use the word required 
here, they just provide the space. 

The most fun part is the wording in the written brochure. Words like "must" and "shall" are used throughout. These words 
legally mean the same as "may"; they do not have a legal mandatory construction. Then towards the bottom, the word 
required is used twice. The brochure states that Midshipmen of the Naval Academy and Cadets at Westpoint are NOT 
REQUIRED to register for the draft, but Merchant Marine Academy midshipmen ARE REQUIRED to register for the draft. The 
best legal reading I could make of it is that the only people legally required to register for the draft are Merchant Marine 
Academy midshipmen. 

What is the moral of the story? I seriously doubt that there is any authority to draft a Citizen of any of the several states for 
branch of the service today. There might have been, up until say 1948 (?) when the Army of the United States became the 
United States Army. Prior to that time, a draft was done on a quota basis by states, and the governor of a given state had to 
approve. Since that time, the army has been an army of the federal United States as opposed to an army of the several States 
United. With no approval at the state level for draft quotas, how can the federal United States Draft anyone but its OWN 
citizens, who are merely residents in the various states? 

Get the message, you younger men? Why fight a war for General Motorss or Exxon, when, if your status as a State Citizen 
is correct, you don't have to????

had on it a request for "Place of Residence or Domicile." For those who don't know, the word "employment" legally means 
hired and desirous of government "benefits" such as social security, where as "hire" does not imply that you desire govt, 
benefits. Also, a "residence" is what you live in here if you are a resident alien... ie, one of the citizens from Washington DC 
that just lives here, also known as a "US citizen." Citizens of California are DOMICILED here. 

If my recall is correct on these old job applications, then, digging up some old job apps from corporate archives might shed 
more light on the Citizenship issue. (Just a thought)

Subject: State Citizenship v. U.S. citizenship 

What's the difference? Do the courts recognize the difference? The answer to the first question is too long to put in just one 
post and the answer to the second is found in the following evidence, which please read and understand - DC. is killing your 
brain with its incessant propaganda: 

"State Citizenship, under our system and as used in the Constitution and Judiciary Act, is essentially different from national 
citizenship The latter is defined to be the relation of allegiance and protection between individuals and their country. It is the 
antithesis of alienage, and involves a national right or conditions." Hammerstein v. Lyne, 200 F 165, 170. 

"A person may be a citizen of the United States, and not a citizen of any particular state. This is the condition of citizens 
residing in the District of Columbia and in the territories of the United States or who have taken up a residence abroad " 
Prentiss v. Brennan (1845?), Fed.Cas.No 11,385, 2 Blatchf. 162. Areas identified by ZIP codes are revenue districts of the 
U S and are not within the geographical boundaries of State Citizenship. 

"Citizens of the District of Columbia are not Citizens of a state." Behlert v James Foundation of N Y., 60 F.Supp. 706, 708. 

The privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States, which are protected by the 14th Amendment, against 
abridgement by the states, are those which arise out of the essential nature and characteristics of the national government, 
the federal Constitution, treaties, or acts of Congress, as distinguished from those belonging to the Citizens of a state;. ..." 
Gardner v. Ray, 157 S W. 1147, 1150; Hammer v State, 89 N.E. 850, 851, 173 Ind 199, 24 L. R. A, N. S., 795, 140 Am. St 
Rep. 248, 21 Ann Cas. 1034 (Emphasis added.) 

As you can see the difference does exist and is recognized by the courts. The last decision is probably the most noteworthy: 
You don't have any rights unless Congress has granted them to you, or has agreed by treaty to let you have them (Genocide 
Treaty) The Civil Rights Acts make this point abundantly clear: "Civil Rights are those rights which the municipal law will 
enforce " State v Powers, 17 A 969 

The Federal Civil Rights Statutes created rights which may be protected by federal courts in the exercise of their normal 
equity jurisdiction " Progress Development Corp v. Mitchell (1960), 182 F.Supp 681, 711 See"? The rights weren't there until 
Congress created them and enacted them into statutory code And notice how the "rights" are enforced - federal courts equity 
jurisdiction given them to enforce the municipal law of the District of Columbia Under all this evidence, which would you rather 
be????? Only you can decide and take the proper action This is NOT a class action thing This is strictly an INDIVIDUAL 
PERSONAL decision. No class action anything, here Until next time . .

5 Who the IRS has Never Prosecuted D 

Li Submitted by Scott Eric Rosenstiel U 

Who does the federal government prosecute for tax evasion, and who do they not? Good questions. 

For about the last twenty years, more and more people have been looking for the "silver-bullet" to get the IRS out of their 
pockets. I know that the true answer to this question is something called "state Citizenship." Some people talk about 
Citizenship, but unfortunately, it's a very complex legal issue and few understand it. 

Some of the other popular arguments against the federal personal income tax revolve around franchises, the Uniform 
Commercial Code, claims that the 5th amendment protects a person from having to file, filing is voluntary, what is or isn't 
money, or income, or whether or not the 14th or 16th amendments were ever ratified. There's some merit to most, if not all, 
of these, but they're not the complete picture by themselves, and none of them, individually, get rid of the IRS. As for the 
amendments, the courts consider these questions to be "political" and therefore can't rule on them. 

But there's one other popular argument against the income tax that I've never seen taken to court I've never seen a loss or 
a victory - I've never seen a prosecution against anyone who was using this argument at all! The way the IRS, and the 
government in general, seem to work is that if they can't win, they won't waste the time going after you With the IRS 
especially, why should they waste their time on a no-win, when there's so many other people they could go after that don't 
know what they're doing? 

This argument goes something like this, "I'm not subject to the federal personal income tax, because I'm not subject to the 
Public Salary Tax Act of 1939 (PSTA). which is its basis." 

Here's what I think is the story behind this 

By 1920, there were so many federal laws that there was a lot of ambiguity over which ones were still in effect So congress 
went into the statutes and took those they believed to be still in effect and arranged them, by subject-matter, into the 50 titles 
of the United States Code, the first edition of which was put out in 1926 Their problem was that it wasn't clear all the time 
which laws were or weren't in effect, so they didn't passed the codes into law They were just a compilation They were 
usually write, but in some cases were either wrong or incomplete The law was still what was in the statutes The codes had 
no greater legal validity than a compilation of federal law put together by you or me, except, this one being put out by 
congress, more people looked to it and respected it that they would yours or mine In 1947, congress began a more thorough 
job of researching the statutes so that they could pass them into law When they did that, the code would be the law; it would 
be both accurate and complete Over the years they've passed about half the codes into law One of the ones they haven't 
passed is Title 26 - the Internal Revenue Code. 

In 1913, congress (allegedly) passed he Federal Reserve Act, which created a privately-owned series of banks, the Federal 
Reserve banks (the Fed), and allowed these banks to create paper money After they create it, they loan it back to the 
government (This is like you giving me your paycheck so that I could loan it back to you at face value - plus compound 
interest! The Federal Reserve System is nothing more than a scam, a scam that goes on solely because of the people's 
ignorance of it.) Apparently, it's a privilege to use this money, but one that everyone's presumed to have accepted, and after 
having done so, they've basically signed on to the federal government's debt to these banks 

Apparently, the federal government declared bankruptcy around 1930 This means that everything it had had to go over to its 
creditors, and every US citizen had signed on to this debt! The Fed didn't take possession of everything though The 
government and the citizens still have right of possession against third parties, but not against the Fed and its collectors 
Parenthetically, this may explain why some government economists say that what you have left after taxes is what they're 
pleased to give you They may not just be arrogant They've may've put us all in a legal position where they really do own 
everything! 

If this did happen, this would mean that the creditors own ail property in the US, that means real and personal, tangible and 
intangible This would of course include all businesses 

In 1939, congress passed the PSTA, which taxes the salaries of everyone who works in any capacity for the federal 
government After this, they began taxing everyone 

Every tax researcher who's opinion on this issue I'm familiar with says there's no law in the Internal Revenue Code that says 
who the individual is who's liable for the individual income tax A lot of them think the liability statute is the PSTA. This 
argument is use, either by itself or with others, by a high percentage of those courageous enough to stand up to the 
government on this issue, and there's never been a case where it's been brought to court! At least, I've never seen it been 
brought up in court. Maybe it has and I'm just totally barking up the wrong tree? But I've seen cases involving all the other 
arguments, and none involving this one Just to be sure, I called former police detective Richard J McDonald He's been 
researching taxes, states' rights, and related issues for nearly 1 5 years. I asked him if he'd ever seen a case where someone 
brought up the PSTA - whether they won or loss. He said he hadn't, that he thinks the chances of such a case being brought 
up is virtually zero, and that if someone brought it up in a case, the government would drop it like a hot potato. 

Let's assume this is right for a moment. This could explain why Title 26 was never passed into law - it's incomplete It's 
missing the liability statute (It may also be incomplete or wrong in other areas ) If this is true, I don't think they're in a hurry 
to let the public know about all this Imagine if they took someone to court on tax charges, and he said he wasn't liable for the 
tax because it's basis is the PSTA, and obviously he isn't subject to it because he works for a private company. Now imagine 
the judge rules against him. Then he takes it up on appeal and the court rules that everyone is subject to the PSTA. The court 
would in essence be saying that the government, or perhaps more properly its creditors, own every business in the United 
States, that everyone is working for them! 

The government creates its own enemies I don't think it's significantly worse now than it was in the 1950's The only 
difference is that more people are aware of the bad things it does Ruby Ridge, Waco, Oklahoma, etc. The more they're 
aware that it's being used as a tool against them by those that control it (its creditors), the more people turn against it.. (The 
human beings who ultimately own the Fed control the other major central banks of the world, too, and many of them can trace 

40 1st Quarter 1996 Blacklisted! 411 



their family's wealth back centuries Politicians, lawyers, and academics come and go. But the real power stays in place, allowing 
its "frontmen" to take all the blame for its misdeeds ) Just think about how upset people would be, and how fast the news would 
spread, if a court admitted, today, in 1995, that everyone is subject to the PSTA, meaning that the government/its creditors own 
everything More people would wake up to what's really going on than ever have before They'd turn off the OJ trial. They'd demand 
action And they wouldn't be satisfied with establishment-backed "anti-establishment opposition" such as Rush Limbaugh, Newt 
Gingrich, and Colin Powell Think about it for a second: the government's creditors own everything you think you own, down to the 
shirt on your back 

In the meantime, those in the know are at least able, apparently, to use it to keep the IRS from prosecuting them To add to the good 
news, many, if not all, of the states that have a personal income tax base it on the federal one, so the same argument can be used 
against both 

Below are two sample letters I think this is right, but again, I could be way off base If you decide to use them, or any of the 
mformatin contained, therein, you're doing so at you're own risk Two things I do know are that there's no prosecution, that I know 
of, where someone bought up the PSTA, and that using it in a letter won't necessarily stop them from sending you more harassing 
letters Sometimes they'll try 5 or 6 times, or even more They rarely if ever have to answer in court to letters, so from their point of 
view, why not? Also, I suspect that a lot of people who receive IRS letters respond to them once, and then if they receive a second 
one chicken out and pay it If you do use it, please let me know how things turn out 

I also acknowledge that this isn't the real "way out " That involves state Citizenship - done properly For those of you who're 
interested in learning about that, I've put a catalogue of material I offer on the subject below I also invite you to call my. computer 
BBS at (818) 762-1288 FREE ACCESS FROM THE FIRST CALL! 

This information, if it's true, and I think it is, is extremely valuable I'm giving it away free of charge, for no other reason than I think 
it could help people I mean, I could easily charge $50 or $100 (or more!) for information like this But I'm not doing that Since 
you've benefited from a good deed, it's only fair that you do one yourself After the letters and my catalogue is a file called 'Altmed ' 
Please make and distribute as many copies of this as you can Put it on every computer BBS, the InterNet and every on-line service, 
and make hard copies for people

Blacklisted! Abbreviation Listing (M-N) 



In this issue, we will start with our HUGE listing of common abbreviations used in the areas we tend to write about. 
We could only fit abbreviations through N's in this issue. We'll put some more in the next exciting issuel If you ever 
have any additions to this list, please fax them to us, write us a letter, call us, etc. P.S. This was a submission! Do 
we all know what THAT means? WE DID NOT WRITE THIS. Hell, something similar was probably already printed 
somewhere else before we got ahold of this. Anyhow, the acronyms on the following pages are VERY useful! Enjoyl

Technoless Hacks 

by the xspOOk 



Let's face it. One of the main motivators on why we hack (short of trying to prove how elite we are) is the cost of living We 
can't all afford that nice new 104 megabyte Microcrank Word Processor, so we call on those horrible warez dOOdz to provide 
it for us. Or, how about the outrageous pricing by everyone's favorite institution, the phone company? This is exactly what 
compels us to learn about color box techniques as well as computers, cable TV, etc... 

So what about the everyday things that cost us money. Well some things can be hacked without even knowing technical 
details. Here are a few of my favorite: 

Parking Meters 

If your city has the old non-digital parking meters you can get the full time amount with just one penny Scrape a penny on the 
ground in a manner that you are trying to give Lincoln a lobotomy. I usually carry inside my car a pair of pliers or wire cutters 
so I don't have to take the time to scrape a chunk off of the penny. Size it so that it just fits into the dime slot. When the penny 
can fit the slot, jam it in and crank the knob. What happens here is that the penny is stuck allowing more cranks on the knob 
which is what gives more time. The penny is eventually dropped into the vast majority of silver coins (and a few lobotomized 
pennies) in which by then you should have the full amount of time. Save your coins for a soda 

Local Mail 

Let's say you're going to throw a party for a few select friends and need to send out a few invitations. They all live in the local 
area. Go ahead and make out all your invitations but address the envelope with your name as the sendee and who it's 
supposed to go to as the sender Don't include the postage. Now drop the letters in different mailboxes (make an attempt not

Soda Machines 

I just seem to have the worst luck with soda machines They are always taking my money and never give me what I want. 
Revenge is rewarding The machine needs to have one of those dollar bill slots while you need a dollar and some scotch 
tape. Tape one end of the dollar bill with two extention tabs that your fingers and opposing thumbs can grab onto. Place the 
dollar bill in the slot and let the machine accept your bill Just when you no longer see any of the bill yank it out by the tape 
tabs. You should now, if done right, get your soda and maybe pocket some change. Use the change for the parking meter... 

(Uh. . by the way, these are considered illegal almost everywhere so. well you know.)

Ok, this be my first article here. Each issue will present a classic arcade game from a technical standpoint. The first game in 
the series is Space Invaders 

Space Invaders was one of the very first microprocessor-based arcade games. Designed originally by Taito, it inspired a 
whole new genre, the shootemup. It is a true historicallly important game, one worthy of note in any context 

On the technical side of things, Space Invaders was composed of an 8080A microprocessor (8 bit Intel) 8K of program ROM, 
and a bank of dynamic RAM for the screen memory. Space Invaders used a bit-mapped screen system in which the pixels 
were plotted under CPU control, then clocked out as video data. 

The sound section of Space Invaders was composed of a series of circuits, one for each sound effect. Each one used several 
3900 op amp circuits with the exception of the explosion sound, which used n Tl 76477 sound chip made by Tl. This sound 
chip was used in some later games such as Nibbler & Vanguard & Fantasy. The invention of the Gl chip AY3-8910 rendered 
this chip obsolete, along with the seperate circuit sound sections 

Space Invaders had two Easter Eggs within the program One effect could be performed by saving a skull as the last enemy. 
He would then begin drawing exclamation marks, and erase them on the way back. If you did this trick on a Space Invaders 
Deluxe, you would recieve the Rainbow trick, in which the exclmation marks would explode in a sort of "oil gusher" effect. This 
trick also works in the sequel "Return of the Invaders". (It is not known by me if the 3rd sequel Majestic 12 also has the same 
secret. When I can find a game, I can update this point on the article). There is a rumored second secret within the game, but 
the enabling trick and effect remains unknown to me. (if anyone knows this second secret, please write to Blacklisted! 411 
Thank you.)

Call Security - Does it exist? 

ha ______ — .._.._______..______________ _J 

Does call security exist? Well, sure. ..if you have some money to lay down on the equipment - and what a hassle to use, since 
most of the people you'd want to talk to would also need similar equipment such as yours. The fact is that your calls, no matter 
if it's on a cordless, cell phone or hard line, your call may be monitored (or tapped, in some instances - at least, that's what 
the official word if for hard line monitoring of a telephone line.) See the picture below? That's a shot of what people in the 
business refer to as a "J-box", "phone closet" or "utility closet", no matter what it's called, do you have any idea what this is? 

It's a security hazard, for one. 
Others would look upon this 
as a great "opportunity" or 
such. In my eyes, this is a 
learning experience. What 
we have in this picture is at 
least two dozen phone lines - 
completely unprotected and 
available for anyone to use, 
steal phone calls on (with use 
of a beige box - a linemans 
testset - a phone with 
alligator clips, for easy 
hookup to a phone line), take 
pictures of <ahem>, browse 
and pilfer through it, 
vandalize, modify, etc. One 
must wonder why it's so easy 
to open one of these suckers 
up and play around inside. 
Number one on the list: No 
locks! After that are a zillion 
other reasons. The point is 
simply to say that a j-box is 
an easy target for the hi-tech 
criminal, just waiting to take 
his (or her) share of the billion 
dollar annual theft of service. 
In apartment buildings in the 
lower middle class, cheapo 

housing for the low income all the way up to the HUGE condominium complexes for the upper middle class. ..you see these 
little j-boxes... sitting there. With gobs of wires twisting throughout it's innards. Nobody's safe from the invisible fly by night 
phone freak who's job it is to access your line and use it for whatever reason... from listening in on your personal or business 
conversations to using the line themselves for their own purposes - perhaps to make a few 1 -900-EAT-BUTT calls. If you're 
paranoid about this sort of thing already ..and you always wonder what that little click you hear every so often when you're 
talking to someone. ..and you kid with each other about how "the operator is probably listening".... You may not be too far from 

the truth ANYONE can listen to you if they want to! Don't panic. There's a solution. Purchase yourself (and all of your 
friends, family and anyone you talk with) a phone voice scrambler set It'll slow down the eavesdropping, at least!

Lately I have been experimenting with ways to get around ANI (Automatic number identification) and I have 
found some interesting results with different methods. For example, here in New York and in many states in 
the North East, some long distance companies will have 950 accesses to get to their network. Companies 
like MCI and Frontier, based in Rochester, N.Y., MCI being the national company and Frontier being 
Rochester company that only handles the Northeastern states. One would have an account with one of these 
companies, and one would dial 950-#### that would be a free call from most any phone. Then you hear a 
tone. At that point, you would enter your "Calling card access number." At that point, you would enter the 
phone number you wanted to call. When the bill comes, only the number called appears. I have asked the 
billing representative where the calls came from and she said there is no way of getting that information. 

When I dial Frontier's 950 number, I get a tone. The access code is six digits, so I dialed 123456 and then 
zero+area code+number to see what would happen. I got a Frontier operator who asked me the number I was 
calling from. I was calling from a pay phone in New York City and I told her I was calling from the 315 area 
code; I gave her a number at random. She took the number and she asked how I wanted to place the call, so 
I said collect. I called my home collect and when we got the bill, it showed the collect call from the 315 area 
code and the number I had given the operator! I did the same thing again but this time I gave the Frontier 
operator an exchange that did not exist I said I was calling from 516-909-9901. When the bill came, the call 
did not even show up! I tried giving an area code that did not exist, like the 710 area code; this had the same 
results. This means if the area code, or exchange, or both do not exist, they cannot put it on your bill because 
they are not billable numbers. Thus, I made an UNTRACEABLE FREE CALL! 

One can also do this with MCI. I have an account with MCI and I have to dial an 800 number to reach the 
system. I enter my card number and the number I want to call. When I get the bill I get the number that I called 
from and the number called; if I use their 950 number to reach the network it shows the 950 number as the 
number called from on the bill. Their 800 number has ANI. However, I can spoof the ANI by having the local 
zero operator dial the 800 number for me. ANI is not passed from the local operator to the MCI 800 number. 
I can do the same thing that I did with Frontier. One can use 1-800-COLLECT and make it so the party on the 
other end will not get billed. One can even get a form number from somewhere other than where I was calling 
from. A T&T has an 800 number one can call to place calling card and collect calls. I just have the zero 
operator dial the 800 number and the operator will come on and ask for the number calling from. I do the same 
thing and I could charge it to a calling card. 

I wonder why when you have the zero operator connect you to a long distance carrier, (AT&T, MCI, Frontier, 
Etc.) the ANI is passed. It is not when an 800 number or a local number is dialed. When an operator calls a 
number that has Caller ID, the Caller ID box shows "Out of area." 

In conclusion, 950 numbers do not have ANI and zero operators do not pass the ANI when dialing local 
numbers and 800 numbers. 



numbers and 800 numbers.

"PacBell Man, on a Pole Sent in by Rhoid - Buena Park, CA - (To 

the Left) Nothing too exciting here. A Pacific Belt worker on a utility 
pole Looks like they're adding a new line on the pole Possibly a 
fiberoptic line? If the print comes through ok, notice the light colored 
(yellow) cord just barely above the head of the worker. That's 
indication of a new line being strung up along the poles We've been 
seeing a LOT of those around these parts lately, it looks as if it's 
some joint venture between AT&T and Pacific Bell We'll show a few 
pictures of what what's going on around here in the next issue. 
"Traffic Box" Sent in by Bill Hayes - Hollywood, FL - (Below, 
Captions provided by Bill Hayes) In this picture, I saw a maintenance 
man doing some work on an intersection control box I asked him 
some questions, and he was quite forthcoming about his work 
(adjusting, maintaining, and upgrading these control boxes, all 
around Palm Beach County), what he was doing (changing the timing 

* m % mm afe_ 

m 

of the light sequence at the intersection of Palmetto 
Park Road, an East-West main road, and Boca Blvd , a 
residential North-South crossroad When asked, he let 
me shoot him working on the box, and take a picture of 
the inside The lower-left boxes are modems (he told 
me), so that sequencing can be remotely monitored. 
The gizmos in the middle are transformers — power to 
the box is 100 VAC, but some of the power therein is 
required at 24 volts DC, some at 220 VAC. This was 
an interesting experience for me. This gentleman was 
willing to talk my arm off about what he was doing and 
how much he enjoyed it I spent way too much time in 
the military for that In one of the rare times when 
someone less than fully authorized would actually see 
me and my fellow Science Officers at work, I'd say 
something like "Oh, THIS? Upgrades, just more 
upgrades Ya know, newer, faster, more secure " And 

I'd be believed, almost always, and then be left alone. Basically, I was trained not to say ANYTHING to ANYONE, doing what 
I was doing, and told that we (as Science Officers) all had active KGB files. Lots of "trawler" activity and satellite flyovers at 
Fort Ord, Fort Hunter Liggett, and Camp Roberts during 1980-1983, when I served there in my technical capacity. 

"Water Station" Sent in by Bill 
Hayes - Hollywood, FL - (Caption by 
Bill Hayes) To the left is a picture of a 
control device, which was completely 
installed on October 2nd, 1995. I was 
really impressed with how fast this 
thing went up, passing this site the first 
time about 10:30am, and for the last 
about 4:00 that same afternoon. A 
couple of weeks later, I saw the ground 
doors open, and no truck around! I 
parked a couple of blocks away under 
a tree, and walked up for some pix 
The beast is for remotely controlling 
water. Inside the bay-type doors, 
about 5-6 feet below ground level, are 
the blue-green colored pipes that are 
used to residential water. (The 
highway visible is Glades Road, one of 
the main East-West links in Boca 
Raton.) The picture I took looking 
down into the "bay" did not come out 
because of the sun's contrast The round power meter was registering use, and the components and the water pipes were 
humming — I will assume this thing was under way when I saw it Questions: Why is this water control device station 
apparently set up for remote control on/off? This is not a flood area (at least 15 feet above sea level, this is about the highest 
area of Boca Raton), and I know of no other reason to shut it off Except maybe — populace control .? If drinking water (yes, 
its very safe to drink the water down here) can be turned on remotely, why can it not also be shut off remotely?

Getting Busted 



By Gambit Of The Guild 



I had been using computers ever since I was five years old. I loved computers and everything that they could do. I started off 
on the old Apple lie systems; programming in basic and logo, but this was not enough for me. I needed something bigger; 
something better Something that would give me more control over computers. I moved up to the Apple lie not long after the 
lie More and more I learned Then the next big step came: A Macintosh SE. 

Oh did I ever have fun with that. It took me awhile to find something that I like to program in I tried basic, xlisp, forth, hypertalk, 
and a few others, but none of them seemed to give me much control over my computer. Then I finally found what I had been 
looking for: PASCAL! 

I programmed for days on end, learning more and more by the second. But yet, this was still not good enough for me. I gave 
up programming for a few years as I found the world of the ever-growing IBM PC market. This is where my story begins. 

I had been going to a local high-school for just a few months when I found their PC lab. Oh the fun I had. Hacking account 
after account on their network, the fun never stopped; I had to have a IBM of my own I soon found a job at the local mall and 
began saving my money; then one day, I got it! An IBM 8088! 4 7mhz, 20 meg hard-drive, CGA color monitor that could hook; 
up to a VCR, and the best of all. A 2400 BAUD MODEM! 

I don't think I got any sleep for about two weeks; night after night I would call around to all the local bbs's, making myself 
known My first handle wasn't that great F.O.R.B.D. (Found On Road Brain Dead) A few weeks after I started I found myself 
wanting to start my own bbs; and so I did The Midnight Oil it was called, and I was The Night Owl In just my first week I got 
fifty new users, and about sixty system crashes I needed a new system. 

I went from a 8088 to a 286, to a 386sxl6, to a 386dx25, then to my last system that the feds now have It was a 486sx20 with 
5 megs of RAM, a 720 meg Hard-Drive, a 540 meg Hard-Drive, a VGA monitor, a 4x speed CD-ROM, a hand held 256 grey 
scale scanner (boy was that fun :) ), Windoze 95 beta copy (pirated ) ), and about 1 gig of zipped pirated warez that were now 
on my new and improved bbs I had started being a pirate bbs soon after the biggest one around closed up for good I had the 
biggest problem keeping the userlist under 200 Everyone was coming to me Many loved me, while many others hated me. I 
didn't give a shit if the feds ever found me, and people didn't like that Some of my best users started their own bbs's, and I 
didn't like that Pirate board after Pirate board went down One board I fooled the sysop into thinking that I was someone else 
and told him that I wanted to hook him up with a hella kewl Pir8 file network that got shit straight off the InterNet. He fell for it 
and I gave him a virus that killed his bbs It's now back up, but it will never be the same 

I made another sysop think that I was his best friend to get sysop access on his board. Just a little modding to his autoexec.bat 
file, a "Wreboot" command, and no more bbs. I took down about three or four bbs's until my board got so big that no body could 
compare I even modded the source code to my bbs (wwiv 4 23, Pirated :) ) so that even if someone got 255 access or if my 
account was hacked, they wouldn't know any of the sysop commands to do any damage 

I loved my life I'd party every night, go home for a few hours a week; go to school for three of four hours, then cut It was great! 
What more could a person want? Well, I'll tell ya. 

One day in the PC lab while I was taking a nap, a friend woke me up and told me that he had found something hella kewl in 
the local library system He showed me and it was kewl He had found a some escape keys that would let any user shell down 
into their unix system Time to crash a system! 

I went home and deleted everything that the system would let me delete. And I crashed it! This was my first time in a unix 
system, so I didn't know most of the commands, but I learn fast :) It didn't take me long to find the WALL command, and the 
next think I knew I was sending messages to all the terminals in all the libraries in Sonoma county. Mainly I was just telling 
them to go fuck their mothers, but it was still fun 

This went on for about four months then I got tired of crashing the system and sending messages I began living my life the 
way I had been: Drugs, beer, etc Everything was cool Then, two months after I had stopped the feds came to my door. 

They had put a caller ID box on the library and had been watching me while they got their case together. I was 17 at the time 
I could have been put away until I was 29 if the system wanted to fuck me over But I got off real easy $600 fine, 200 hours 
of community service, and letter to the library telling them how sorry I was, and six months of probation. I still got my job, and 
I even just got a promotion to supervisor I still party all the time; but my probation bitch type person says that I have to be in 
every night by 10pm That kinda pisses me off, but it's all good. I'm working on one hacking job right now, and I'm gonna be 
settn' up a new Pir8 board real soon with a friend of mine I lost my computer to the feds, but I now have a Sharp Wizard 
oz-6500 with a 2400/9600 fax modem- witch I'm now typing this On 

I am now known as Gambit Of The Guild and I have one thing to tell all of the new hackers out there: always remember to dial 
'67! Caller ID really sucks :(

DIALING CODES - Part I 



North America Area Codes: 

Bell Communications Research (Bellcore) is the organisation responsible for the maintenance of the area codes and the 
dialing setup for North America since the breakup of AT&T several years back. This group sets standards for dialing, 
telephone number format, etc. 

Area codes (or Numbering Plan Areas (NPA)) in North America are presently of the form NZX where N represents a number 
from 2 to 8, 2 is or 1 and X is any number. This distinguishes area codes from central office (exchange) codes which are 
usually of the form NNX (ie. the difference between an exchange and an area code is usually in the second digit, whether or 
not it is a or 1 ) 

Area codes ending in -1 1 are not used, as they are normally used for special services The special purposes generally 
reserved are 

411 directory assistance 
61 1 repair 
811 business office 
91 1 emergency 

The other N11 codes are sometimes used within specific localities for special purposes (711 is used for mobile service in 
British Columbia, in the form 0+71 1 )). In some cases, services are accessed through the long distance network (ie 1+411 or 
1+611). 

Area codes ending in -10 have been TWX numbers (teletype service). TWX area codes include 510, 610, 710, 810 and 910 
Normal telephone numbers do not (yet) use area codes ending in -10, though these codes will be reassigned to regular 
telephone service as TWX is eliminated. Upcoming examples of this are the area code splits of 213 (Los Angeles adds area 
code 310) and 415 (San Francisco adds area code 510). 

Area codes ending in -00 are usually reserved for special services like 700, 800 or 900. In fact, these codes are not considered 
to be area codes as such, but Service Access Codes (SACs). 

Theoretical capacity of the telephone system: 

The original design of telephone numbers was: 
(NZX) NNX XXXX 
In theory, this gives: 

NZXNNXXXXX 

8*2*10*8*8*10*10*10*10*10=1 024 billion numbers 

However, as some area codes and exchanges are reserved for special purposes (such as 41 1, 555 exchange, etc), the total 
possible number of telephone numbers will be somewhat less 

As the exchange codes in some area codes were used up, some central offices started using the NXX format, where the 
middle digit can then be a or 1; examples of these may be found in New York City or Los Angeles The March 1990 
conversion of the (416) area code around Toronto is another example, as is a similar change to North Carolina's dialing 
around the same time. The dialing is changed so that dialing 1+ a number always requires an area code, and in the case of 
(416), will mean that 1+416+ will be needed for long distance calls within (416). In New York City, however, all calls within an 
area code are dialed with seven digits only (without dialing 1 first, let alone the area code) 

Now, telephone numbers look like this: 

(NZX) NXX XXXX 

This gives a potential of: 

NZXNXXXXXX 

8*2* 10*8*10*10*10*10*10*10= 1 .28 billion numbers 

However, codes like 411 and 611 would not be assigned because they will still be needed for services such as directory 
assistance and repair. Nevertheless, some unused N11 codes like 211 may be found in some area codes as active 
exchanges It's also not a good idea to assign the home area code (could cause confusion) 

Going from NNX exchange codes to NXX only represents a 25% increase in the total theoretical amount of telephone 
numbers, and not all area code regions are expected to run out of exchanges Also, area codes do not generally go outside 
a state or provincial boundary (the only exceptions are in Canada, where 902 serves both Nova Scotia and Prince Edward 
Island, area 81 9 which covers the eastern Northwest Territories as well as part of Quebec, and area 403 which covers Alberta, 
Yukon and the western Northwest Territories). 

The ultimate goal is not only to use area codes for exchanges codes, but to use exchanges codes for area codes also. This 
means that telephone numbers will ultimately look like this: 

(NXX) NXX XXXX 

This gives a potential of: 

NXXNXXXXXX 

8 * 10 * 10 * 8 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 = 6.4 billion numbers 

With a five-fold increase in the number of possible area codes, there should be plenty of room to grow for some time.
